There are three credit bureaus, Transunion, Equifax and Experian. There are different scoring models for credit. For example, you get Vantage Scores here, but most lenders use a version of FICO scores. There are many and I mean many different versions of FICO scores. Different lenders use different versions because some version are more helpful to them as others. Some people may pay their car payment on time so it doesn't get repo'd, but may not pay their credit cards on time because nothing will get taken away. So a credit card issuer would utilize a credit card version rather than an auto loan version of your scores. Hope this helps you better understand and I hope that you will take time to read about credit, there is a lot to know and the more that you know the better your future will be with credit.
