"Many lenders will pull scores from all three bureaus and use the middle score. That's why it's important to get your credit score checked at Equifax, TransUnion, and Experian. Visit this page from the Federal Trade Commission on how to get your scores for free. Search the scores carefully and fix any errors before applying for a loan. The FTC provides more information on fixing errors on credit reports on this site."
This information is incorrect! You can access the site listed above from the FTC to get your REPORTS for free (once a year), but NOT your score. If you want your score, you need to go to each reporting bureau website and request it, for a fee.
