A guide to Credit Karma's free credit scores

Oct 11, 2014

Im 65 my credit score is 698 everything is paid on time , never late, but they still say i'm D due to my year and eight months, can figure it out, also my score taken direct from the three credit companies are higher than shown by credit karma , . I know there are difference but a 30 points is a large difference when it comes to buying , I wish some one could fix the system to be easier to understand .
