Hi to all MyFico members

 

recently i applied to the Teamsters  credit card and got denied . In the email they send me they state my equifax score is 618 but i checked my fico equifax score today and it is 702.. now i applied for the card on 2/15/14 and checked my fico score today on 2/22/14 could a couple of days really increase my total score like that ? I just paid a $423 balance on a $1000 CL

Re: Denied credit card

Unless that CC balance has updated at the CRA it would not make a difference, its probably due to a difference in FICO Models being used to generate the score, its also possible the score you were given with the decline is an internal model and not a FICO at all, if it doesnt say FICO its not a FICO.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
