Re: Credit Karma laugh

It's a FAKO score.  No need to pay attention to it.  

 

My scores for example:

 

TU08 FICO 731

CK Transrisk 710

CK Vantage 745

USAA 771

Oh, yeah...they do. Did you click "update score" so that it showed report as of 12/21/12? Or did it say score from 01/2011?

 

My CK score dropped from 680 to 667 after I paid off a card!

It reports I lowered my util and raised my available credit, and it still drops my score!~?

Nothing else on the report changed.

 

I can't wait to update myFico TU report later today to see the increase in score because I was expecting it from CK and didn't get it! Ha!


The same thing happened to me. :smileyindifferent:

Opening a new card will frequently drop your score, as it is a new inquiry.

Well, it's probably more than just the inq. Give_Me_Credit_Please stated that s/he opened an account, so the score drop might have included dings for the inq, the presence of a new account, and a drop to AAoA.

 

But even then, I don't take CKs FAKO scores seriously, so who knows?

Re: Credit Karma laugh

I do enjoy CK. Atleast there i can find info about my credit for free instead of always having to pay like here. I don't really pay attention to the score since it's FAKO but it's my favorite site to use for monitoring my credit.

+1 This is true. However, identity iq is growing on me, even though it's not free (at least $7 a month is much more reasonable than $14 at free credit report!)
