Re: How do u get a ExperianFico?

Experian stopped providing their FICO scores to consumers a coulple years ago.  No one sells it, not even themselves.  You have to have a lender pull or belong to a particular CU in Pennsylvania that provides it to their customers.  Sorry.



Starting Score: 504




July 2013 score:
EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+

PSECU member's can get it, but they do not allow consumers to purchase scores now. 

 

Also, not sure how accurate the EX FICO is that AMEX reports in their denial letters, but I've gotten a couple and they state "Experian FICO score on scale up to 850" and I called them to verify that it was a real FICO and they confirmed it for me that it was. 

| Walmart $5k | Amazon $5k | NFCU $20k | NLOC $15k | Lowes $17k | BoA $15k | Freedom $3k | IT $5.25k | CSP $5k | Marriott $5k | AMEX TE $18k | Alaska $5k |
Starting Scores: EQ:571 EX:??? TU:597
Current Scores: EQ:694 EX:714 TU:711
Goal Scores: 700

What is that EX Vantage score that they sell on their site?  I bought it for $7.95, but don't know what its used for or how close it would be to the EX FICO score.

It's their own score.  No real correlation to your FICO score.

I'll also add that FICO has a range of 300-850 and Vantage of 501-990. Each factor accounts differently and the scores would be different. You can also get a TU Vantage from CreditKarma.

No idea...  when I contacted them before I knew what FAKO vs FICO was, they advised me the score was for educational purposes only and may not be what lenders use.

There's an old Megadeth B-side track that if played backwards reveals the secret rituals by which a consumer can see this score.  Be warned, these rituals are not for the faint of heart.  The ingredients are rare, and chilling... and the ritual itself will leave a deep psychological scar.  You will be changed forever.
