I disputed and had items removed but my score went down. Is this normal?
It happens sometimes. If you don’t get all your negative accounts removed all at once and had your oldest credit line removed it could lower your score. If you have stuff still reporting every month as negative it will bring your score down. If you don’t have many positive accounts it can bring your score down. BUT YOU NEED TO REMOVE ALL THE NEGATIVE ACCOUNTS and then your score will heal. Sometimes if you give it a few months, your credit score will increase again.
