CK down Experian up?
I had a collections item removed from my credit report and my score on CK went down 22 pts but Experian score went up 23 pts! I'm starting to think I can't trust CK.

Hi there,

There are 3 major credit bureaus in this country. Credit Karma provides scores and reports from Equifax and TransUnion. We do not have any information from Experian. Your creditors are not required to provide data to all 3 credit bureaus. Many choose to report to just one bureau. Because each report can contain different information, the scores can vary. Comparing scores from different bureaus is "apples to oranges". There are also many different credit scores available, and they will typically produce different results - even if the report is identical.
