Scoring products (sometimes referred to as "risk scores" or "credit scores") are
|“||predictive models based on analyses of historical consumer credit history and performance data. When a consumer applies for credit or insurance, the models use information in the consumer's credit history to predict the risk posed by that consumer. The risk is typically summarized in a numerical score.||”|
"Each scoring model may treat disputed information differently and the exact nature of the scoring model algorithm is proprietary. Specific information currently under investigation may not be used in calculating a credit score (e.g., if a consumer disputes a particular late payment, that late payment is not considered when the credit score is determined)."
