You can get 2 different scores from CK- a TransRisk score which to my knowledge is not used by any lender and a VantageScore which is actually used by a few lenders.

 

So the TransRisk score is useless and the VS has some merit.

 

And all the information at CK is taken from your TU report.

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
EX - 3/11 pulled by lender- 835, EQ - 2/11-816, TU - 2/11-782

Re: credit karma

Credit Karma is actually good if you want to catch a glimpse of your credit report, it doesn't go into too much detail like the power report from here but it does give you a raw idea on how your credit report is looking, and you can pull a new report everyday for free, not bad at all.

 

The credit score however is a different story, my TU Fico has moved 40 points in the last 3 months but the Transrisk score of credit karma has stayed stuck at 605 for the same period.

 

What's funny is that for most people the Fako score is usually higher but for me its always lower on all 3 reports.

That hasn't been the case for me. My Plus FAKOs have been lower than my FICOs, but that's a good thing.Smiley Wink

Re: credit karma

The TransRisk score from CK is more on par with the TU fico I've gotten from lenders (in the poor category) and the the VantageScore is closer to the TU that I get from here (in the average category).

Re: credit karma

My FICO has usually been higher by 40-50 points off the TransRisk FAKO they offer when compared the same day. And usually my Vantage FAKO is higher by 30-40 when compared to TU FICO the same day, but lately my Vantage is actually LOWER than my TU FICO when compared the same time, despite the 501-990 range compared to FICO's 300-850.
