In a recent mailing myFICO send out an infographic which has the following FICO score rating:
However, on the actual myFICO.com page these categories shows up:
It's not really clear to me how within one and the same company the score brackets as to what is poor, and what is good, can be so different. It doesn't inspire confidence and it does reinforce the public perception that scores and their meaning are just made up on the fly.
Clearification would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I understand your frustration but that sounds like a marketing error IMO
The ball was dropped in proof reading the info you got from this site was correct and I would pay no attention to the mailing
