Re: Is this a scam? My FICO went from 678 to 818 and in less than 2 hours is back to 678

A big jump in score is an understatement as 818 is the highest possible score on that specific EQ FICO version. I assume there is something that temporarily calculated an erroneous score and that triggered an alert.

 

I don't understand why you would pay for a report instead of just looking at the alert. Did SW show your current score as 818 before you pulled the report?

 

I would post your concern in myFICO Product Feedback Forum and they will figure it out. They will likely give you another free report to use later if an error caused you to spend money for another report.
