Scoring Your Credit – FICO – All three of the major credit reporting agencies (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) use a slightly different system to arrive at a score. The best known is called the FICO score, based on a model developed by Fair Isaac and Company (hence the name) and used by Experian.  Equifax’s model is called BEACON, while TransUnion uses EMPIRICA. While each of the models considers a range of data available in your credit report, the primary factors are: Credit History – How long you had credit? Payment History – Do you pay your bills on time? Credit Card Balances – How much do you owe on how many accounts? Credit Inquiries – How many times have you had your credit checked? Go to this site for additional information.
