SCORE JUMP? I HOPE SO!!!!!

I look at Credit.com and it looks at EX.  Is that a FICO or FAKO?  Anyhow...it gave my last free score on 2/12 as 627.  I just started Creditsesame.com tonight and it does EX also and it says 650.  THAT'S 23 POINTS!!  Are all FAKOs the same if they use the same CA?

Shogun, I concur.  If the score I got tonight is reasonably correct then mine is off by 60 from CK.

Wow! That certainly sucks. So what good are FAKOs anyway? And is there any way a consumer can get their EX or TU FICO? As far as I know, we can only buy our EQ FICO, right?

Re: SCORE JUMP? I HOPE SO!!!!!

There are also some perks of having certain CCs or belonging to certain CUs that will give you your FICO scores.  Walmart gives you your TU08 if you have their card and sign up for paperless billing.  DCU I believe gives you your EQ and a CU in Pennsylvania gives your your EX.
