Re: Our Forums' FICO High Achievers: Who has at least one FICO Score of 760 or above?

Kkap: 

 

What do you mean by ". . . 49 different FICO scores"?  FICO is the standard, used by most lenders, for EX, EQ, and TU scores.

 

Banks select their own score reference; you can always ask them which one they use for loans.

 

FICO doesn't give 'free monthly FICO scores.'  But, you can get a free annual report once a year from a website, but not a free score.  If you want to know your scores, you have to pay for them from FICO.

 

One other point, if you are looking around for a loan, tell the lender not to do a "hard pull" on your scores.  If they do, it will go on your record and lower your FICO scores.

Starting Score (1/1/07) - EQ: 813 -- TU: 804 -- EX 825

Current scores (8/15/14) - EQ - 847; TU-846; EX-841

Goal Score (12/31/14): Whatever

Hi,

 

Thanks for your input.

 

1. There are in fact 49 different FICO scores. This is from FICO's official statement.

2. I did not say FICO gives free monthly FICO scores. I said there are 6 different institutions that provides free scores for their CC holders.

3. I am not looking for a loan but thanks.

Whoops, my bad, Kkap.  I thought you were asking questions in your previous post.

 

I did click on your links and found the discussions about FICO scores, et al., quite interesting and enlightening about the FICO game.  I even copied your little FICO chart.  Thanks.  Don't know if I'll ever need that much information, but I can pass it on to my kids. 

 

Cheers.

Unbeknownst snuck past it with a 768 from EQ with my OCCU pull which translated into a $20,000 CL and a $20,000 CL from Penfed.  Still smiling after my venture from the high 500's.

I'm not sure why the need for caps, but as far as I understand the way to maximize your FICO score via UTIL is to let all but one of your cards report a $0 balance at statement cut, with the other reporting 9% UTIL (which is subsequently paid in full).

Dude, stop yelling. Also, that person got their mortgage in 2009, they didn't get ripped off in 2009 terms. That was an excellent rate for the time.

My FICO score was 787 using Equifax. When I tried the simulator, the only way my score goes up by 10 is if I take a new mortgage! if I take a car loan it drops. Does not make sense. Why would some one with a fully paid up house would be at higher risk of default on their credit than some one with a mortgage and revolving credit? 


myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
