Hanging out with a lender that uses TU04 tomorrow.
Has anyone ever seen a score that has been > 30 point difference? I'm sitting at 27 points over 640 and I think that gives me a pretty good cushion.
My EQ is under 640 but Experian is my "cleanest" report.

I've seen both situations - it's really hard to speculate. One factor which might trend your TU98 lower would be if you have an AMEX charge card with a balance -- TU98 includes this balance in your revolving utilization, but TU04 does not.

I agree cant speculate, but from pulling reports all day every day, its more in your favor to have a boost in your TU04 version.

following up on this thread, my TU04 score came out to 650. My TU98 was 675 the day before. I have no amex.
I'm guessing the difference is how collections are treated/scored. Just guessing though.
Not a big deal though since it was still over 640.
