In general, I understand that the "free scores" are really just good for trending, but I was curious as to how close they were to actual fico scores. Ie creditkarma's transrisk score vs TU fico score, or creditsesame's score vs EX fico score. Thank you!
They're not very good for trending because your FICO can increase and FAKO decrease for the exact same thing. Difference? Factor in +/- 100 pts. IME, I've had some FAKOs be spot on one month and 100 off another month. Sometimes my FAKO is higher. Sometimes lower. My biggest recorded difference was 225 pts when both were compared the exact same day from the same CRA.
