FAKO scores my apologies. Pulled from Identity Guard. I'm thinking of making changes to my monitoring subscription. So should I use MyFico?

 

Another question. Does utility only apply to Credit and Store Cards?


Utilization is calculated for installment loans but it's effect on scoring is very, very minimal. Utilization for revolving credit is 30% of your total score so it's very important to keep it as low as possible.

Re: When To Close SubPrime Accounts

Yes i will definitely pass on the info! Since my scores are FAKO would you assume I have higher FICO's? Another question I have is since you're unable as a consumer to purchase your EQ FICO how do we access that information? or are we only entitled to knowing only our TU and EX FICO scores? Just sucks for us consumers trying to see progress when we are unable to see the "whole" FICO picture.

Re: When To Close SubPrime Accounts

I agree, Shoediva!  I don't understand the motive behind not allowing us to purchase our EX FICO either!  I wish they would reconsider and change that eventually.  Anyone "in the know" ever hear debates/talk over whether EX may offer these scores in the future?

"It's myFICO and I can cry if I want to!"

Starting Score January 1, 2010: 640
Current Scores Updated Sept. 6, 2011: EQ: 765 / TU: 778 / EX PLUS: 773
Goal Score: 800

There is no way to compare FAKO's and FICO scores unfortunately.

 

I think you typed the letters wrong. Experian is the only score consumers are unable to buy. Creditors can pull Experian and also there is a CU in Pennsylvania that supplies that information to it's members only. You can only buy true FICO scores at a few places. One place is here at myFICO. I suggest you do an internet search for "myfico discount codes" to save a little money.

 

You can also purchase your Transunion score at www.transunioncs.com. At www.equifax.com EQ will still sell an EQ FICO score byt they make it very hard to find. Do not buy the new "Equifax Complete" product that is being sold there. The reports are accurate but the scores in Equifax Complete are FAKO's.
