FAKO Scoring

So i like many others use CK, but was wondering how off is it from your actual TU Score? Because my CK score everytime i get my score checked at annual report or at my bank because they can pull it for free for me, CK is only off by 5 pts, which isnt a whole lot but it is either 5 pts above/below, so i was wondering how off is it for others?



I realized i am still young and still have many years to achieve whatever i want.

Re: FAKO Scoring

Seems like it depends on the person/situation. 

 

For me, when I applied for my Discover card, Discover reported my TU as 725.  My CK at the time was 695ish.  I checked my myFICO TU recently before applying for a couple other cards and it read 701, while my CK was 699. 

 

My buddy was opposite.  His CK reported 725 while when he ran is myFICO, it was 699. 

 

And then I've heard people say their CK was off 75 points.  I mostly just like CK for tracking HPs and stuff.

In my past experience, both the TransRisk and Vantage on CK were both higher and lower than my TU FICO when pulled the same day. Sometimes it was close within a few points and as much off by >100. It all depended on what was reporting at that time.

looks like your TU 98 and TU 08 are similar!

 

and to the OP, the CK TU FAKO score is super random for me. I, at first tried to find a correlation, found out i was wasting my time. Now I just use it to track UTIL and HPs, nothing else.

Re: FAKO Scoring

Keep in mind that lender pulls can also be enhanced scores based on what you are app'ing for (i.e. auto enhanced). I have found this to be a big reason why scores are different.
