If I read this right, your Experian score is high and TU is high but Equifax/CSC score is lower and you are unsure why but want them to reconsider/re-score you to help your overall appearance.

600-700 is considered marginal credit, while 700+ is generally considered good credit or exceptional when you exceed 750+

It seems to me that your Equifax file must contain some items which are damaging your score and report overall.

I think that paying a reseller to re-score and reinvestigate at a substantial sum per item is likely not the answer. If you write Equifax and request "re-score" they will treat it as a normal reinvestigation request that is too vague unless you request reinvestigation of certain specified items.

I would obtain your credit report disclosures and contact Equifax's legal department or outside counsel, listed in this forum in a posting, and ask them to reinvestigate these errors in writing. Advise them of the urgency to handle this matter. Copy the letter to Equifax, CSC, and even TU and Experian. Be specific in your disputes.

I am not a proponent of Rapid Re-Score and the like. The CRAs set up resellers to permit them to sell mortgage reports and then demand monies to reinvestigate by claiming that these puppet resellers are not CRAs thus permitted to charge monies for immediate reinvestigations. What better incentive to screw up credit reports? To be able then, through a ruse, to charge for reinvestigation at anywhere between $20 to $150 PER TRADE/ITEM reinvestigated.

I would contact of these folks and ask them to expedite corrections so that your future credit scores will be corrected. Document everything and confirm in writing with "cc's" to everyone.
