Why is this FICO® Score different than other scores I’ve seen?


There are different credit scores available to consumers and lenders. FICO® Scores are the credit scores used by most lenders, but different lenders (such as auto lenders and credit card lenders) may use different versions of FICO® Scores. In addition, your FICO® Score is based on credit file data from a particular consumer reporting agency, so differences in your credit files may create differences in your FICO® Scores. When reviewing a score, take note of the date, bureau credit file source, score type, and range for that particular score.
