15 open credit cards: 5 bank, 10 retail.

Where is that from?   On CK, mine has been 990 for the last few months, jumping from 910 to 940 to 990 fairly quickly, while my FICO score stayed fairly stable, between 750 and 770.  So great Vantage on CK doesn't mean great FICO....

Ah, then maybe this isn't as crazy as I thought. It's from CK. Don't know her FICO.

 

I do know that mortgage and car loan people have had jaw-dropping reactions to her score -- saying they'd never seen a score so high.
