Why is there a Negative # on my Credit Score?
I have decided to increase my credit score little by little. I just opened a $500 credit card with my bank, and I just checked my score and it went down. I have already made my first payment before the due date. Why is it going down? Will it go back up? I am concerned because the number it went down was not a small number. It was greater than 10.
