finally got an updated score today on CK with an increase of 12 points on the transrisk and 38 on the vantage!!. only FAKOs I know, but I consider it practice for when I pull a new FICO score. They are still showing that one of my balances is higher than it is, so more jumps to come when that card reports!! So I am practicing my happy dance for the real thing. If you do this right, it just keeps getting better!!!!!!!

Be careful. A change in your FAKO scores doesn't mean your will have a change in your FICO score. Even the change direction could be oposite.

While it is true the FAKO doesn't always reflect FICO, if you got your util down, your FICO will go up if it changes. So, keep practicing that dance

FAKO's favorable UTL percentage is easier to get than FICO, accordning to Credit Karma FAKO UTL of less than 20% is an "A" in there book where myfico says FICO likes 9% or less, My FAKO score increased slowly as my UTL went from 19% to 13% my FICO score stayed the same during the same time period, I am not expecting a big leap in my FICO score untill I am finally reporting 9% UTL and I may not even get it then since I will have balances on 2-3 cards at the time that happens.
