Has anyone else seen this?

Can you be more specific on what you've seen or done that you think initiated the change? A credit boost could be due to any one of many different factors.

So the credit bureaus can now change your credit score by you just asking?!?!

No, the credit bureaus don't change your credit score 'by you just asking'. If you are disputing an item that is impacting your credit score, the impact that the item is having will usually be removed from your credit score while the dispute is ongoing. If the resolution of the dispute is in your favor, then the score will remain the same, all else being equal. If the resolution of the dispute is in the creditor's favor, then the item will go back on your credit report, and the impact will again be seen in your credit score.
