Factors adversly affecting FICO score

Received fico score with number of "Key Adverse Factors" listed. Requested and received full credit reports and found no evidence of any of these. None. Reviewed reports with credit agencies.  They too found no reason for the factors listed. How can this happen?

Re: Factors adversly affecting FICO score

If it ere a split file, would not the "bad" accounts that are causing this show up on the full credit report?

I think a split file results in more than one credit report under your identity, so it's possible that you wouldn't see everything.

 

The thread referenced above recommends contacting the CRA directly if you believe your file might be split.

Yes, whichever CRA provided you the scoring reasons that didn't match up.   Either EQ, TU or EX....
