The "Payments" field on TrueCredit is not the amount of payments you actually made, but the total amount of your required monthly minimum payments.

PAYMENTS reported: TU $447 EX $542 EQ $447You do the math $17204 bal minus $13235 bal = $3969 in my book, not $659 like TU is stating.
Because FAKOs are worthless and should be ignored. Trying to make sense out of them is futile.

If not, then just follow the threads and threads of great advice you get on here, and ride the wave. FICO only has relevance once you put a new loan application on someones desk. Other than that, it is just ego.
