FICO Higher Than FAKO

I got the 3 in 1 this morning from TU and was surprised to find my EQ FICO was 40 points higher than my FAKO from Truecredit. I was quite surprised. Anyone else find this?

For me, FAKO lags FICO by between 20 and 90 points.

Re: FICO Higher Than FAKO

It's not uncommon for your FICOs and FAKOs to be up to 100+/- point difference.
