How can Equifax drop my credit score by 20 points after submitting a dispute?

I saw that the data they have wasn’t correct, so I submitted a dispute. It took them 45 days and even though I was correct, they dropped my score by 20 points. Nothing else on my credit rating changed, so I know it was only because of the dispute I submitted. They even offered me to sell me some other service in addition when I first contacted them. Can I also drop them, just like the city of L.A. dropped S&P?
