Just for the heck of it, I called customer service to see what they'd say. She put me on hold for about 15 minutes while she looked over the records and callaed Fair Isaac (I thought MyFICO was Fair Isaac, but perhaps they outsource customer service). Basically, all they'd say is "it's not uncommon to have a big difference." They didn't know why there was such a big difference, but they said it's common (I think it's probably more accurate to say that either the CS rep didn't know, or isn't allowed to talk about the specifics of scoring -- surely someone there knows the reason). She also said something like "the higher you go, the less they like the difference to be, but it's not uncommon." I'm not entirely sure what that's supposed to mean...

Anyway, it's not a huge problem, since my scores are good anyway. I was more curious than worried about it.
