Anyone willing to test this ?

 

 

Oh Yeah !

 


If all three CRA's are frozen then no score of any kind could be generated.

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
EX - 3/11 pulled by lender- 835, EQ - 2/11-816, TU - 2/11-782

Where did you get that information?

 

Almost all information available says otherwise.

American Express does not use Vantage score. They have their own internal scoring system, that is based on your Experian report.


Starting Score: 627 EQ, 621 TU - 11/15/08
Current Score: 778 EQ, 781 TU, 778 EXP 07/20/12 Lender Pull

Re: Credit Cards and Lenders who use The Vantage Score ?

Is the Vantage score the same as the FAKO score?  I believe we see our Vantage scores when (if) we log into that other credit related site called something like www (dot) notquitetruecredit (dot) com, is that correct?  I see all three CRA scores (FAKO or Vantage or whatever the heck they are) reporting... mine, fwiw, are currently TU 817 / EX 832 / EQ 772.

Vantage is one version of FAKO's, which is a general (and derisive) term for credit scores that aren't derived from FICO formulas.

 

Other FAKO's are PLUS scores, the Equifax FAKO's, etc.
