Amex - credit secure

[ Edited ]

Today I decided to enroll into Amex credit secure unlimited. I was surprised how all the credit agencies are so close in numbers

 

 

 

 

This was the first time I had ever seen all my score at once. I had used myfico and when app Amex to get my FICO. My question is are these FAKO scores or are this a FICO score. My Amex and myfico on EQ is 771 pulled 11/21/12 and on Amex as you can see its 767 EQ pulled 12/12/12

 

 

Current Score: 771 - 11/21/2012/ Amex Pull
Late Payment: 0 / Collections: 0
AAOA: 6.3 Years

"My Scores Yesterday or Last week or even Last month has no value when applying for credit today. The value is not in my score but the information in my credit file. Once the information is good the score will follow"

Re: Amex - credit secure

Thanks shotgun

 

Guess what I tired to login again and it kept asking me to enroll again which I thought it was strange, so I called the secure credit department and was told the BCE is not eligible for this service so it would be cancelled. No big thing I got a peek at all my score.

New update

 

I called back the Amex Credit secure department and spoke to a supervisor and was told the same that BCE wasn't eligible. Since this department are not really amex employee's I told him that BCE wasn't a prepaid card  and not because it says cash everyday . 

 

He then decided to enrolled me again and everything was fine, 

 

Its sad that they didn't know

Re: Amex - credit secure

To be honest this is my first time using this service. I have never used Equifax product before. However I am sure someone on this forum will be able to tell you the difference

Define better?!?!?

 

If it doesn't say FICO, it's not a FICO and no lenders use the score.

 

So what are you asking is better per say? The interface? The price?

Re: Amex - credit secure

I'm wondering if this isn't part fico 8, and their own internal score mixed.....
