Why would having a collection account removed from my credit report cause my score to drop?!
I have been working working on rebuilding my credit I went for my 530 to a 745. I have recently challenged some collection accounts and they were removed from my credit report. This caused my credit score to drop by 90 points! Why would having the collections account remove lower my score?! And why bu this much?!
