How accurate are the Credit Agencies Websites

I just checked Transunion website after getting an alert from this website for Equifax Score increasing. When my lender (trying to get a home loan) pulled my report on May 28th it showed Transunion at a 602 and when I just got on their site it shows a 662.

 

How accurate is that? I mean I have done a few things that would make it come up but didn't expect that huge of a jump. If that is accurate that would be AWESOME!!!!

TransUnion sells scores, but they aren't FICO scores.

Correct.  They sell Transrisk scores.  It has a range from 100-900 and obviously different algorithm than FICO.


My Starting Score: EQ: 691 (11/30/11) TU98: 726 (11/30/11)
My Current Score: EQ: 779 (04/22/13) TU08: 835 (06/03/13)
DW Starting Score: EQ: 742 (03/02/12) TU98: 748 (03/02/12)
DW Current Score: EQ: 784 (03/11/13) TU08: 775 (06/03/13)
