why did my 'transunion' credit score drop 16 pts this month
there has been no negative activity, no new accounts, no closed accounts, no change in ownership of any current accounts, no late payments. the revolving balance on my credit card has stayed the same as the previous month. how does the score drop 16 points and why is there nothing on this site to give us an idea of why it dropped and how we can prevent it.

To learn about how credit scores are calculated, go to www.credit.about.com.  The scores you get from this website don't mean anything to anyone but you.  They are what we call FAKO scores (as opposed to FICO, which is the only true score that counts).  I can't explain why the TU score dropped, but I can recommend the credit.about.com website for tons of great information about all things credit related.  Much more info that this website.
