Stupid Experian

I don't know,I dont care and I dont want to understand,but my fico experian score is about 50 pts less than other two myfic scores while they all have same credit reports,(actually the Experian has the least HPs since I always made sure the company I applied to get cards from use the transunion/equifax).So I am thinking I should freeze the experian? should I? I know the credit card companies checks my scores ocasionally and I dont want them to see the experian.

Re: Stupid Experian

Fico scores can be quite whacky. my Myfico experian is also about 60-70 points less than my myfico TU and EQ so i know your pain. I think experian must be counting something more heavily against you on your cr than the other two are ?

Re: Stupid Experian

The credit card companies use what ever bureau or bureau(s) they are set up to pull credit with. There is no way you can prevent the credit card company from pulling a bureau. The main thing you can do is make sure all that is reported on your credit report is accurate and the score will be whatever it will be. You can work on improvingyour score as well.

Re: Stupid Experian

EX always reported my HELOC as a CC. so it was much lower than the others due to being nearly maxed out

There's a bunch of little idiosyncracies between the bureaus and the scores generated; however, a big one is the fact that EX here is the '08 version which for me tracks markedly higher than any of my other scores.  I'm not certain why as my EQ is unarguably my best report, but I *think* newer versions may count recent history more heavily in their calculation, and most of my sins are many years old now.

 

That is pure anecdotal conjecture in addition to the economic realities at the time that version was released; if correct that's actually a consumer-friendly shift by FICO, hadn't really thought of it like that.

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 717, TU 8 732, EX 8 740 (11/01/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)
