There is a real push by FICO to make it seem that they have only a single "magic number" that everyone uses, and that all other scores are meaningless. The reality is that even within FICO there are multiple versions, with differences between the 3, and then scores biased for auto loans etc. I will be very interested to see how the FICO scores change once they update the formulae to account for all the foreclosures in recent times.
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
