Why did my credit score drop drastically (-27) after only 5 changes, 4 positive and 1 from 10% to 15
Credit Karma sent me an email saying my credit score had increased. I went to check the changes, there were 5; 4 of them were credit cards being paid down so they should have positively affected my score and the only negative change was a credit card going from 10% utilization to 15%? So why does it show my credit score DECEASING by -27 points? Any answers would be much appreciated!
