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.
