MEMPHIS (WMC TV) - There are only three sites you can trust to get your accurate credit score. Each charges a fee:

* www.myfico.com.  This is the Fair Isaac site.  Fair Isaac's credit score formula is the one most trusted by the credit bureaus, vendors and creditors. 

* www.equifax.com.  The credit bureau Equifax offers a fee-based credit score to go along with your one-free-per-year credit report. Select "View All Products," click "Reports Only," then choose "Equifax Credit Report + Score."

* www.transunioncs.com.  This is the credit bureau TransUnion's Consumer Solutions site. Like Equifax, it offers your credit score for a fee along with your free credit report.

The following are FREE sites to help you estimate your credit score:

* www.bankrate.com/calculators.aspx. Choose "FICO Score Estimator."

* www.credit.com/calculators

* www.quizzle.com
