50 Point difference between scores, WHY?

Theres a 50 point difference between my TU fico 674 & my fico Ex 620, my EQ is 646 also. Theres the same thing on all of my credit reports, all reporting the same thing. Why is my scores has such a big gap?

Re: 50 Point difference between scores, WHY?

I'm wondering the same thing.... I know they are using different calculations, but my disparity is even greater than yours from my highest score to lowest:

EX 683, EQ 627, TU 616. All FICO from here.

Starting FAKO scores: EQ: 566, EX: 566, TU: 569 (27 Apr 2013)
Starting MyFICO scores: EQ: 618, TU: 544 (4 May 2013)

Current FAKO scores: EQ: 665, TU: 658 EX: 635 (4 Jul 2013)
Current FICO Scores: EQ: 651, TU: 662, EX: 694 (13 Jun 2013)

Goal: 650 REACHED!!
New Goal: All 3 in the 700 Club!

Re: 50 Point difference between scores, WHY?

Are they showing the same information on each of the CRAs?  They often have different information on them.  Compare them side by side and see if there's any difference.


Starting Score: 504

July 2013 score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+

My TU and EQ are about the same score, yet there are quite a few differences between the two.

All 3 is reporting the same thing except my Ex has a Cap One chargeoff that falls off next month. I suspect that wont give me a 40 point boost though

Re: 50 Point difference between scores, WHY?

Even if you had identical information an all three reports, all three scores would be different.  It is due to the differences in formulas for each CRA.
