Bad Item Removed - Score Didn't Change!

My last bad item from Transunion was removed, leaving me with 0 baddies and no lates.


My vantage was 720 with the baddie and remains 720 with it gone.


Baddie had virtually no age (6 months).


Is this normal?

You are talking about a FAKO score ~ these scores have their own scoring formulas and do not behave like FICO scores much of the time.

I would recommend pulling your FICO score to see where you really stand.

I agree with pizzadude.


My Vantage score went up 20 points in the last couple months but my Transcore has not moved.


I know they're both FAKOs but basically one has no correlation with another.

BCE: $0/$11,200, CSP: $0/$6500, Chase Priority Club: $0/$3500, Freedom: $0/$6000, Barclays NFL: $0/$7000 Discover: $0/$12,500, Citi Dividend: $0/$3500

EQ FICO - 728
TU FICO - 734

I would also ignore any advice that a FAKO score provider tells you to im porove your FAKO score.  Unless it is paying down CC debt and paying on time that is.
