Wow !!! Congrats, that's fantastic !! Does your EX report show older tradelines or other info that isn't on the other two?

My EX score is also considerably higher than my other scores.  Notably, my EX report does include a lot of older TLs (some +7 years old) that are not included on my EQ or TU.

Re: Experian FICO

ok so what is the point of having your fico score? if "most lenders use Fico 04" what is it I see on myFico?what kind of model- how do we know what model a lender pulls can that be asked of teh lender ahead of time? the difference between 629 and 585 is huge! am I just deceiving myself by belonging to this- if it's about monitoring my credit report for accurate information then I could just do that at Equifax's website for less...

Overall, I have found a lot of useful information in these forums which have enabled me to slowly rebuild my credit scores to an acceptable level.  The forums have been an invaluable supplement..  In regards to my FICO scores, I have learned to simply use the information as a baseline.  As I employ different things learned in the forums, it is satisfying to watch the upward trajectory of my scores.  

 

Indubitably, I agree.  It would be nice to see a post which details which variation of FICO or other scoring models that the bigger enders/creditors use.

Re: Experian FICO

I have the same problem. My experience fico was 676, when pulled by a lender using corelogic it was 629. Equifax & Transition matched exactly. It is odd.

Re: Experian FICO

It depends on what version they pull.  I know Amex pulled the same EX as I have here.  Some of the others do too.


Starting Score: 504

Current Score: EQ FICO 819, TU08 778, EX "806 lender pull 07/26/2013
Goal Score: All Scores 760+, Newest goal 800+
