"FICO" Speak

I hope this doesn't sound like a dumb question, but when someone asks "What's your FICO score?", is the common answer your FICO-EQ score, some combination of all 3 FICO scores, or is it best to ask which FICO score they're referring to?

Depends who's asking.  If you're at a cocktail party, add 100 points. :smileyvery-happy:
