Credit score of 853?!?

I work at a bank, and when pulling a clients auto loan, I saw her credit score.  It was a 853!  How is that possible?  Is it a score outside of FICO?

Re: Credit score of 853?!?

It's probably an auto-enhanced FICO score. I think they work on a different scale, with a higher top score.

Yep, the Experian auto loan FICO score uses a scale that goes from 250-900.

I know that TU has a TransRisk score. I get it free through my Sears Citi card.

 

Also, I believe there are 2 TU Classic scores...the one we get here, and then the one pulled by most lenders. Ours here is an older model. They might be 98 and 04 (I didn't look that up...it's a guess).

I heard the "Free Credit Report.Com" score was a fake score, is it a FICO score?
