Re: TU98 vs. TU04 and FICO/FAKO

Understood.  I highly doubt you would find any kind of correlation that said your TU98 would always be 12 points lower than your TU04 or vice versa.  If so, it would be an awfully stupid endeavor to create a new formula.

 

But it would be interesting to know if the two were always within 15 points of each other one way or the other for 95% of people or something like that.  Or if you could say that for profiles that do not have AU accounts, they are closer, or for profiles that do not have charge cards, they are closer. 

 

But I say if the spread is in the 30 point range, then we might was well start calling TU98 a FAKO.  Unless, of course, there are a significant number of lenders still using this model.


Starting Score: ~500 (12/01/2008)
Current Score: EQ 681 (04/05/13); TU 98 728 (01/06/12), TU 08? 760 (provided by Barclay 1/2/14), TU 04 728 (lender pull 01/12/12); EX 742 (lender pull 01/12/12)
Goal Score: 720

Re: TU98 vs. TU04 and FICO/FAKO

FYI, My TU04 from discover denial letter is 13 points higher than TU98 (747/734)

I believe new version favor more on very low UTI%( less than 7-9%). Utilizing more than 9% will likely result in lower TU04 than TU98.

Re: TU98 vs. TU04 and FICO/FAKO

As been noted before the dedup time frame in FICO 04 was increased. I read another post on this forum where the poster had posted the TU socre model information from TU. There is not that much difference, the number of scorecards are the same. Some will benefit from the update some will not this can be said about every score model that comes out.

Re: TU98 vs. TU04 and FICO/FAKO

Well, I just received my free TU FICO from my Walmart card and it is 28 points higher (730) than the one I paid for on 6/22 from here. I know myFICO still uses the older version, so given all the circumstances I feel I got a bargain AND a more "accurate" score in terms of a more up-to-date model.

Recent Cards:
