Re: Difference

Fico score is the score that 90% of lenders use

 

Fako is a term coined for any score that IS NOT fico

 

basically you should only care about your FICO score, and only use any FAKO score for tracking purposes.



Starting FICO Score: 10/1/12--EQ 512 | TU 492 | EX 524
Current FICO Score: 2/22/14--EQ 705 | TU 703 | EX 716
Goal Score: 700+
