But it gave me all 3 of my credit scores, which were pretty much where I expected.EqufaxBeaconExperianFairIsaacTransunionEmpiricaSo far, so good. BUT - below the scores it said:Here is the range of credit scores for the credit scoring companies above: Experian Fair Isaac 375 to 900; Beacon - 350-950; Empirica - 300-850.I thought that "FICO (Aka Classic or BEACON FICO) scores can range from 300 to 850" (from Credit Scoring 101) for a start.And are the others FICO or FAKO?And whichever they are, they are the scores my mortgage company is using.So I am really dazed and confused.

It was the ranges that threw me. All the rest seemed correct. But when I called the Mortgage Company they could not explain it. Should I call them and tell them some guy on a message board knows more than they do?
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
