Re: FICO EX score higher than FAKO EX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smiley Happy   Back in the day when we could pull our EX, there were some EX FAKOs that were lower than my EX FICO when compared the same day, and there were some EX FAKOs that were higher than my EX FICO when compared the same day (using PLUS, Vantage, CE Score, CreditXpert, TransRisk, EQ's FAKO, etc.). They were typically within 50 points either direction.
