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.


TU713, EQ 731 , EX 726 (As of 12/13/14) - 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.
