    Host: Why is each credit score different?

    Markita Aldridge-Woods: Again, it depends on the information that s been reported. Also, you have -- what happens is sometimes they ll report at the end of the month versus the beginning of the month with one credit bureau, so the mathematic models actually vary based on that, so the information changes based on what they have. I think, you have large companies; they may only report through Trans Union and Experian, whereas one company may only repot to Equifax, so those scores are going to vary every time.
