Re: totally confused about my scores

There are lots of different formulas used to compute scores, and because of this, your scores will vary.  They will also vary because of different information on each report, and because scores change as information is updated from day to day.

 

I'd suggest sticking with a FICO score from a single source.  If you want to go even further, then I'd follow the FICO scoring model used in the mortgage business.

Pretty much all mortgage lenders use the Classic FICO04 score model.   The 720 would have been your middle score, so it could have come from any of the CRAs.

 

If you look through your documentation you should be able to find your credit disclosure with FICO scores from all three CRAs.

March2010 FICO® ~ 695 TU, 653 EQ, 697 EX

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.
