Credit Score Scale range?

Hi. What is the current credit score scale? I thought the 800 range was the highest but then I ran my credit reports and now looks like 990 is the highest. Did the scale change?

    There are a few different scoring models out there. The one that probably is trusted most is Fico and it tops out at 850. Experian uses Fico. You can get more information at http://www.myfico.com/ .

    Others use the Vantage scoring system which goes to 990. That one hasn't been around as long as Fico and may not be as accepted by lenders.

    There is also a FAKKO scoring model which is an estimated FICO score provided by a third party company. FAKKO is pretty useless.
