About a week ago, I applied for Best Buy credit, turns out Capital One issues their credit cards. Well soon after getting approved I received a letter from Capital One, informing me that I was approved and it also gave me a credit score. This credit score freaked me out, because it read 274! And my fico score is 679! As I kept reading turns out that their scoring system is roughly from 130 to a maximum of 298. Is anyone familiar with this scoring system? If so why did I only get approved for a 600 limit, if by the looks of it 274 out of 298 is pretty good. Isn't?

I applied about two weeks ago when I received my card had the same letter I have been trying to figure it out also. But the letter I got I believe said from 115 to 3something but I will have to check again when I get home.
