Credit Bureau Scores vs. FICO Score

When a creditor pulls your credit, do they see the Fico score or do they see the score that the bureau has? I have a 618 Equifax FICO score but on Equifax site I have a 580 score.

I plan to purchase a vehicle soon but want my scores in the 600's before I proceed. Also I had chapter 7 bankruptcy that discharged in June '12.


>Starting Score: EQ 517 TU 514 EX 517 (5/15/2012) Bankruptcy discharge 6/2012
Current Score: EQ 659 TU 633 EX 654
Goal Score: 700

What's in my wallet: Navcheck $15k, NFCU cashrewards $10k, CO Platinum $1.5k CO Rewards $2.5k, Barclay NFL $2k, CO Sparks Biz $2k AU CO $750, Barclay $1k, NFCU $3k

Re: Credit Bureau Scores vs. FICO Score

The score you see from the CRA's are meant to guide you.

The fico score is what matters.

Goal Score: 700 across the board.
