Why are my credit scores different?
There are a few reasons why your credit scores might be different. First, the scoring models used by each credit bureau can vary. This means that even if you have the same information on your credit report, one bureau may assign a higher score than another bureau.
Second, each of the three major bureaus collects and reports information differently. So even if you have identical accounts with the same balance at all three bureaus, they may use different information to calculate your score.
Third, some creditors don't report information to all three bureaus on time or at all. This means that not all of your accounts will be included in every credit report from every bureau.
