Credit Score Showing Incorrect Figures Under Credit Card Debt

I looked at my credit score report in Quicken noticed an enormous figure under credit card debt, including over 70% usage. I have neither applied for nor used the amount of revolving credit indicated. Concerned about fraud, I reached out to Equifax (where I understand Quicken gets its data) to see where this was coming from. After an examination of my report with their representative, it appears the Quicken report is lumping Equifax's revolving, mortgage, installment, and other debt all under Credit Card Usage resulting in a "you may be spending too much on your credit cards" warning (I use a small fraction of my revolving credit limit and pay it off every month). Only revolving debt should be included under credit card usage.

I am in the midst of a background check for a new job, and this just about gave me a heart attack when I saw it. Fortunately, it appears to be a case of wrong-number-in-the-wrong-spot and my actual Equifax report looks fine. FYI for other users, and a heads-up to the Quicken team.

    I have the same issue today upon updating my credit score. I reported it to Quicken today as the message above states it was fixed on the 8th which is not correct.

    I also have this same issue. I also reported it to Quicken Support, but have not received an update on a resolution.
  • I checked my credit score today on my Quicken subscription for Windows and I have the same issue.
