Hello,
Thank you for using Just Answer. I want to provide you the best service I can. Please feel free to ask any follow up questions you have.
I am an attorney with 30 years of experience; I hope to provide you information that will help you in resolving your question.
Scores can go up and down regularly when there is activity on your accounts. Opening and closing accounts, going over limits etc, can cause this. Usually if the activity stabilizes the score will go back to its base within a month or so. This single event should not be cause for concern.
I hope the information I have provided is useful to you. I want you to be comfortable and satisfied with my attempt to assist you. Please, if you have ANY follow up questions, feel free to ask. Please note that I am generally unavailable Friday evening through Sunday.
Please do not forget to give me a positive rating. It adds nothing to your costs but it helps me greatly. Thank you.
If you are dissatisfied with my response PLEASE let me know before giving me a negative review so that I may try to be of better assistance. Or if you prefer, let me know and I can “Opt Out” and your question can be re-posted without additional cost to you. I will be fair to you and only ask the same from you.
Good luck.
Please note: Information is educational and not given as legal advice. Only your local attorney can give legal advice. I can't establish or accept an attorney-client relationship with you. All posts are available for public viewing.

Hello:
Thank you for the follow up and clarification.
Contact your lender and ask them if they can remove the report regarding going over your limit. You may also discuss increasing your limit.
Regardless, if this is the only issue it should go up itself within the next 30 to ninety days.
This article is useful on increasing your score.

I hope this additional information is helpful to you.
Kind regards,
