This is where GEMB gets weird...

 

They used their own internal scoring system for approval/denial of your app, but the score you can get online monthly from the wally card is your real TU08.

409 does not seem realistic unless you have some alot of major baddies on your report.

Burned is correct.

GE uses their own in house scoring to approve apps, if any score looks weird to you the easiest way to tell if it is a FICO is look at the scoring model range. FICO is always between 300-850.
