Credit Scores

I was looking to get financed for our new home. I ran all three of my credit scores from TU 670, EQ 599 and EX 644. When I went to the lender he told us that my mean/median score was 584 and I could not get qualified. He to us that what we see online from EQ, TU and EX are not real FICO scores? I am not sure what to do?

Re: Credit Scores

You say you ran all of your credit scores. Where did they come from?  If not from a lender or my fico.com they were probably a generic, aka fako. Fako scores are a lot higher than tru Fico scores.

Starting scores 01/02/2012 EQ 707(Fico) TU 733(Fico)XP 735 (FAKO)
Updated scores 05/01/17 EQ 824, TU 812 EXP 810 (all Fico scores) Remember the Three P's: Pay early in Full, Pay on Time, Patience

Re: Credit Scores

A score that does not mention FICO is guaranteed to not be a FICO score.
