Quizzle vs Credit Sesame accurate?

Both pull Experian, are they accurate at all compared to the real FICO? I pulled both today and got over a 20 point difference - 743 Quizzle, 767 Credit Sesame.

Re: Quizzle vs Credit Sesame accurate?

Neither is a FICO score so they both are not accurate at all with respect to your actual FICO scores.


Starting Score (08/11/11): TU08: 643
Current Score: TU08: 741
Goal Score: Stay in the 700s; keep reports clean

Is the score provided on this website a true FICO score?

Both scores here are FICO scores. The TU score is an older version (TU98) but still used by many lenders.

 

The EQ is Beacon 5.0 and exactly matches many lender pulled EQ FICO's.

 

No one has been able to buy their own Experian FICO score since February of 2009. Creditors can pull Experian and also there is a CU (PSECU) in Pennsylvania that supplies that information to it's members only.

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
EX - 3/11 pulled by lender- 835, EQ - 2/11-816, TU - 2/11-782

Thanks so much that's exactly what I wanted to know! I was looking for FICO Experian specifically but I guess its not that easy.

Re: Quizzle vs Credit Sesame accurate?

I need to add that the scores from Quizzle are called "PLUS" scores and they are not used by lenders. They have a scale from 350-850.

 

CreditSesame sells an EX National Equivalency Score and that runs on a scale of 360-850. Just like the PLUS score it is useless.

Re: Quizzle vs Credit Sesame accurate?

I don't trust any of these sites! and I will tell you why.  I have obtained my scores from both Quizzle and Sesame who both obtain your CR from EX. I also subscribe to EX for monitoring and score.  Anyway, my Quizzel score was 767 (Excellent), however, my Sesames score was 667 (fair) big difference considering Sesame claim the score comes directly from EX. Only thing is my score directly from EX is 739 (Excellent).  Motto of the story is..... they are all a pile of crap and only the FICO score is relevant (if that is used by the lender) if the lender is using their own scoring then you can see how wide of difference your CR can be interpreted from as big as being Excellent to Poor category.  Scoring is really just a game...Smiley Wink

They're both considered FAKO scores and are pretty much useless. So is FCR.com. Can you see your CR on these sites?

Anything else other than FICO is just a game.

Re: Quizzle vs Credit Sesame accurate?my

While credit sesame is a Fako it has been reported by many here and other websites as very close to the real Experian fico score.  In my case it's within 5 points of the real score.   Al the other Fako website scores (in my case) are a lot lower than my fico scores but YMMV.
