Buying Equifax scores……..

I understand this site has reliable EQuifax scores.

and it does not sell EXperian.

As far as Experian other than what the lenders incude in their letters when you apply for their cards

where else can you get reliable scores?

Amex Zync NPSL 9/12, Amex CostcoTrue Earnings $10K 9/12
Amex BCE $3K 9/12 (Amex Back Dated to 1983)
Chase Sapphire Preferred $17K 11/12, Chase Freedom $7K 11/12
Discover More $750 11/12
CapitalOne Platinum Secured Card 2K 2/12 (Closed 12/12)
FICO: EQ = 804 EX = 802(Amex) TU = 801(Discover)

Re: Buying Equifax scores……..

Interesting.

When I received the FICO scores that the CCC's included when I got my new cards  they were higher than the FICO scores I purchased.

I thought it would have been just the opposite.

Re: Buying Equifax scores……..

There are many types of FICO scores, and there are also internal scoring models.  So if you want to let us know what the letters say, perhaps we can help sort out the discrepancies.


In My Wallet: Amex BCP (12/12) $32,000, Chase Freedom (12/12) $16,500, Citi Forward (12/12) $14,600, Cap1 Quicksilver (6/12) $14,000, Barclaycard Rewards (5/13) $10,500, Citi Thank You Premier (6/15) $6,800

Amex doesn't provide the scores. Experian supplies the scores as a resell of one of their older products. Scores are PLUS scores. IME, they were within 70 pts.
