You have always had access to one free report a year-- but you have to pay to get the actual numeric score. Now the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has studied 200,000 credit files and made an alarming discovery.
In as many as about one quarter of cases, the scores consumers paid to see-- were different from the scores the lenders see when making decisions on loaning you money.
Some scores were so wildly different, it knocked them up or down 100 points in a system where the highest scores are over 740 points.
A group representing the credit bureaus defends the industry's consistency-- saying the study found "a high correlation among scores." The group plans a consumer education campaign on credit scores.

Witness rescues toddler from railroad tracks
June 19, 2013 11:23 GMT
ROCKWOOD, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities have arrested the parents of a toddler found alone on railroad tracks in Rockwood.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1asg9U3 ) cited an officer's report which said a witness saw the 2-year-old on the rails and picked him up shortly before a train came through the town on Saturday.
Jonathan Noah White, who is 30, and 24-year-old Rahab Jaramillo were arrested and booked into the Roane County Jail on charges of aggravated child abuse and neglect.
The incident report states the child's grandmother told police the boy was often left with her, but she was on "too many medications" to watch him. The boy was put into Department of Children's Services custody.
