Are the scores given on experian.com FAKO?

I read on the experian website that their scores were generated by PLUS Score, not FICO. Where do you obtain FICO Experian scores?


Starting Score: 548
Current Score: EX686EQ682,TU???
Goal Score: 760

I believe you can get the Experian FICO score from your lender, or some Credit Unions.  I know people talk about one specifically that is in Pennsylvania.  But, to be honest, IF it's that much trouble, I would say as long as the EX report is close to the same in as TU and EQ, it's not worth trying to track the real EX FICO.


TU98 697, TU08 697, EQ 733, EX 691 (As of 7/2014) - Personal Goal = 760+

Hardpull.  Sorry...

 

Only one CU gives the EX FICO free monthly.  That's PSECU.

Or even non-free, for that matter, I believe.


myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
