MyFico and Credit Bureau FICO Scores Different

I just did a credit & score check through the three credit bureaus, then did the same for MyFico and noticed differing scores. Any idea why there's a variance of +30 to +50 more from what the bureaus are reporting versus MyFico scores?

Also, I've got 2 credit cards totalling $3,200 and will be paying them down. Any idea on impact to my score?

Thanks in advance.

Check again the scores with your 3-in-1 report. You'll notice they're not labeled as fico scores. Sometimes as Plus+ scores, and other things. In other terms they may be (potentially) useful for you as an idea of your report, but they are absolutely useless as far as lending decisions by creditors.
 
Depends. Your balances are completely irrelevant to your score, just the ratio of the balances to the limits (both combined and for each tradeline).
