I think you missed this part:

I agree with the suggestion of looking over your credit report. Especially since it's free. I would take a look at a credit report at any time--well, at least three months apart for the same bureau's report.
Their score math strikes me as kind of odd. You have a very good score, less than 90 points from 850. Their scoring puts you at 241 with a top score of 401. Unless they are taking things about you into consideration that Fico doesn't, comparing numbers just doesn't seem to work out. Some math guru may correct me if I'm wrong.
