inconsistent FICO score categories

In a recent mailing myFICO send out an infographic which has the following FICO score rating:




However, on the actual 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.

BK 7 2010, no idea what the FICO was after that
Current FICO: 680 EQ, 663 EX, ??? TU
Short Term Goal: 720 | Long Term Goal: 780+
BoA Secured $3,000 | Lowes/GE $1,000

Re: inconsistent FICO score categories

Welcome to the forum 

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 


Typo's happen 

Before you app think...
Have you done your research of the CC?
Does it fit your spending?
Do you have a plan for the bonus w/o going into debt?
Can you afford the AF?
Do you know the cards benefits? Is it worth the HP?
