Why is my Equifax score so much higher than my TransUnion score?
My Equifax score has increased 73 points since my last update. My TransUnion score has increased by...1 point.

This is obviously a huge discrepancy so I'm curious if anybody else has seen this or if there's potentially an error with Equifax that anybody is aware of and if that score will come back down to earth. My TransUnion score is good but the Equifax score puts me into "excellent" territory, so I'm trying to find out how much stock I should put into this sudden, dramatic increase. Thanks!

You will have to compare the two reports thoroughly to determine what the difference is.  Perhaps Equifax has removed a negative item on your report that TransUnion has not yet completed.   Perhaps on your next update you'll see a similiar increase on TransUnion.
