Question by Gregory P: Experian vs Freecreditreport.com.? I recently called Experian’s customer service number to find out my credit score because it had recently been updated. They gave me a score of 543. Since i have a membership with Freecreditreport.com so I went to check it on there and it was at 586. Being that Freecreditreport.com is owned by Experian. Which one do i trust?I am trying to apply for an auto loan with a credit union which only checks experian.
Answer by My Take on It ExperianWhy are you paying a monthly fee to that site? LOL
Question by Mommie in September: FICO Versus Experian? I just checked my credit score using MyFico.com and my Equifax was 584 while. While, I went to free creditreport.com and my score was 515. I immediately cancelled the freecreditreport.com, and went to the Experian website straight. Apparently they are freecreditreport.com and had the account, I just closed. So I guess my actual question is, is my score really 515? If so, does that mean its going to count against me in the mortgage area?
Answer by Steve D You actually have 4 major scores and tons of minor scores. FICO, Experian, Transunion and Equifax all provide scores based on proprietary algorithms. The score used depends on where you are applying for credit. Some banks use 1, some all 4, some an average, some act the middle. Talk to the mortgage officer when you go in.You should also get a copy of your credit report from all three bureaus (go to annualcreditreport.com for your liberate reports) and make sure there are no mistakes on any of them. If there are, dispute the mistake through the appropriate credit bureau to have it fixed (you should do this annually in any event).
Question by Ashley: Why would my credit report look good on Equifax and not Experian? My credit reports looks good for one agency.I have a loan in really good standing that is being reported by Equifax on my credit report but when I look at the other, it has no history of the loan. Should this loan be reported to all three of the agencies?? Or is it up to them?
Answer by Momto2inFL From what I’ve been told, people report to who they want to report to. Which is why they say to print out all THREE credit bureaus when you can so that you tinned see who reported to what bureau. Some do report to all. But I don’t inferred they are required to. (I could be wrong here).I just printed all 3 of my credit reports from each bureau and they aren’t all alike. So I’m glad I did print them all. If you go to annualcreditreport.com you can get your free copy from EACH bureau once a year.
Question by SLoW PoKe: Is the Experian credit counseling session worth it? I just got my credit reports and Experian is offering a free credit session. I’m curious to get more info about my report and to ask questions. If anybody has done it, would you say it was worth it?
Answer by BaC no. everything you need to know about improving your credit score can be found on the myFICO website. The first backpedal is to look at your equifax & experian credit report and dispute anything negative (you may be able to do everything online). Once you receive the results of your dispute- go to myFICO and larn how to raise your credit score.

Question by Robert: Why do all three credit scores differ from Transunion to Experian? So, I went on to Transunion and pulled all three credit (Transunion, Experian and Equifax) and the did the same at Experian. On Experian the scores are 100 points lower. For example my Experian score on TU is 707 but on EX its 569. Shouldn’t their scores be the same no matter where you pull them from? Who do you believe?
Answer by rick29148 You have to remember that the three are businesses & that they make their $ $ $ selling those numbers to their clients. So, they get the info from the businesses that buy their services. Most companies will subscribe to one of the credit reporting bureaus, but not all three – Just to much $ $ $ . So your score will vary between the three depending on where the guys you owe $ $ $ to report you to.
Question by cmb: My score with Experian is 0, but with the other 2 they are good.How can I get a score with Experian? My credit scores are, Transunion-659, Equifax-710, and Experian-0…Experian said they do not have enough information on me to set a score. My question is does it matter if I have an o score with Experian and if so why? How can i get a score with Experian.
Answer by golferwhoworks you have no creditors that you owe that report to experian. NO big deal at all in your case all lenders will use the 659 score to credit grade
Question by moreninobr: Is there a way of disputing Experian wrong information without buying their report? I have a monitoring system with Citibank and they informed me that Experian has a wrong address for me. I already have the report, but to dispute it, Experian wants me to buy their own report. Does anyone knows how to dispute without buying their report.
