See this message and your response at http://blog.creditscoring.com/?p=4607.

You wrote, “For example, while a FICO score of 790 out of 850 is considered excellent, it’s merely mediocre on the VantageScore model — which tops out at 990.”

So, would you refer to a FICO credit score of 301 as 301 out of 850?

What is your correction policy?
