TU credit score?

TU credit score?

I was approved for Discover It that reported my TU FICO as 749.  I checked my auto loan paperwork, which also pulled TU, but the score is 787 based on a 253-893 range. 

 

It is my understanding that Vantage score has a range of 501 – 990.  Is the score given to me by auto finance TU’s own credit score or another product that I’m unaware of? Just curious.

Thanks for the reply.  I was aware that there are many, many "flavors of FICO," but had never seen the 253-893 range before, and it was listed as credit score not FICO.  It does really matter, since I land in the same percentile as the true FICO.

TU FICO 04 AU range is 253-893  AU means auto.


Thanks! That makes perfect sense, since it was the auto finance company that gave me that number.  As I said, it doesn't matter since the percentile is th same.  I just like understanding which one is which.
