Hello! Yesterday I pulled my credit score from Experian using their system. I was given a score of 683. I tried to get a credit increase on my oldest account, and was declined and told I had a score of 608. Because of the difference, I had them pull a new report, which showed a 618. I'm a bit confused on the huge difference, especially since I paid Experian 50$ to pull back my reports. Can someone fill me in on the huge difference? It seems the FICO score here is the closest to being what lenders receive; can I dispute this? Any advice is welcome. Thanks, --William
