Why is my credit score variing 20% between FI and other institutions?

My last credi sco reports from other institutions and FICA showed a variance of 20%. Why is it that big a difference?

Where did you get your scores from?

That would depend on what you mean by variance. :smileysurprised: :smileymad: :smileyhappy:

 

As llecs alluded to, there may be a 20% difference in score ranges too.

 

Are you living within your means?
