@ecalmese: It has been said in this forums that people can't get their Experian FICO score anywhere. You can only get EX FICO Score when lenders pull it. The Credit Sesame score is non-FICO Score.


i know its not the real fico score. i know its an fako score. my question is how close is it to the real fico score +/-

Re: Check your Credit Sesame updated

@ecalmese: I don't know my recent experian score. So, I'm not sure how the score is closer to FICO score. But, people have mentioned that not to pay much attention to non-FICO scores.

It's free and a good way to keep track of your report for well, free.  The score is a FAKO but can be pretty accurate.  For clean reports it's very accurate.  The more derogs on your CR the less accurate it tends to be.  There have been some fairly length correlations done between creditsesame and Experian FICOs via PSECU.

Re: Check your Credit Sesame updated

@ecalmese: You don't have to cancel. If you see the scores are increasing or at least being constant, then it is definitely a good sign. And as boomhower mentioned, it's free.

Re: Check your Credit Sesame updated

Would you say it's probably a +/- 20 point difference or is there literally no telling what the score difference is?

Re: Check your Credit Sesame updated

Not sure on the difference. Someone who has EX FICO scores can throw some light.
