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 .

    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.
