Experian Credit Score

I pulled my EXP score on Experian.com, how many points can I give or take to determine possibly what my real score could be?

Re: Experian Credit Score

There is no reliable formula whatsoever to convert any FAKO to a FICO.

It could be higher, it could be lower, it could be off be a tiny or huge margin, and I suppose it's always possible that it could (accidentally) be the same.


edited to clarify that there are probably a bunch of formulae out there, but none work consistently for everyone all the time, so they're about as worthless as the FAKO's themselves.

Re: Experian

I recently pulled my score from EX -684.  I then applied for mortgage refi and they said my EX was 673.  So for me there was a 9 point negative swing.

Re: Experian

To add, your FICO can go up and your FAKO through EX could go down for the same thing. One of my last CAs was removed leaving 0 CAs remaining at that time, and my EX FICO (when we could pull it) jumped 58 points. My EX FAKO via EX's PLUS score (same as on EX.com) dropped 8 points when pulled on the same day and same time. As an other example, a new CA appeared and later disappeared, but my EX FICO dropped 103 points. My EX PLUS FAKO score dropped only 60 or so. There's no correlation.
