LEARNING CENTER: Credit Scoring Myths

Myth: Credit scores and credit reports are the same thing.

Fact: While the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they are not the same thing. A credit report is the collection of account, public record, inquiry and identification information.  A credit score is the interpretation of that data in numeric form usually ranging from 300 to 850. A credit report, legally referred to as a “consumer report”, can be generated without a credit score but a credit score cannot be generated without a credit report. A credit score is often sold along with a credit report as an ancillary product.
