Re: Walmart TU 612 vs My Fico TU 685

Which one is what lenders see as more real?

Would Walmart use their score to consider a CLI?

Mine are 49 points off...666 (Walmart) and 617 (TU Fico).  They are different versions.  My Walmart TU Score is closer to what my mortgage lender pulled a few months ago.

Lenders don't use either of those model/versions.

 

Both of the scores you have are real for the version/model they are.  The one from myFICO is TU98 the one from Walmart is the 08 model, probably the CC enhanced version.

 

Your scores from model to model can vary just a little or a lot.  Everything depends on your credit profile.

So it sounds like you're saying the TU score on here or with Walmart are both Fakos?

No that is not what I am saying at all.  Both of the scores are real FICO scores.  Just not the same ones used by mortgage lenders.

 

There are over 49 different models/versions of FICO scores.
