I know this is nothing to get excited about.....

But my fako creditkarma score jumped from 565 to 599 today.  Can't help but be a little excited because the changes that prompted this score change should help my FICO scores right?


Starting Score: 547
Current Score: 632 EX, 592 TU, 580 EQ (Lender Pulled 9/8/11)
Goal Score: 620

Ignore the score, what was the change on your report?

I have no problem ignoring the score, just using it as a progression tool.  As far as I can tell, the change was due to two disputed accounts being removed.

CreditKarma was 4 points lower than my TU 04.  It had just jumped up 2 days before "the big pull" for an updated account balance.  It was closer than my TU98.  I hate to say it, but it's true.

I'm sure individual results vary, however this could actually be almost spot on?  That would be very exciting if that's the case!

And my TU98 is 584 at the moment.  This might be awesome news.

Hey, in my opinion, any time it goes up, its a good thing. Keep payin' the bills and staying on top of things and things will get better. SO why not get a little excited?

My credit Karma score is 1 point lower than the score I pulled from here. I know you can't count on FAKO scores, but just saying.
