This statement is incorrect. It was confirmed several months ago by the previous administrator of this site that WM offers the TU08 score.

I'm so tired of all these institutions getting away with making false statments concerning credit.  I mean this is serious business and people lives they are mis-directing!

Re: Why do I get different fico scores for transunion

 Why would My Fico  give scores based on a model that is over 8 years old and probably not used as much? That sounds like the bait and switch. Cant fico stop the difference in scoring models?  Or do they get people to pay for a substandard score like all the other FAKOS out there? It does not make good sense .  We will sell you a score that isn't accurate if you get an auto loan or perhaps a mortgage,  but take what we give you or eventually we will be following Experian ( in the sense that you cant see your actual score without a hardpull.  I thought the Credit reform act addressed all of these issues and was created for fairness to the consumer. If the govt can regulate the way the credit reports are reported and scored to protect the consumer than why is there not a fair lending practice when it comes to the model being used? Shouldn't there be one model used by all lenders, because quite frankly I dont think there has been any reform with credit. FICO seems to have a monopoly not recognized by the U>S< gov't.  Last time I checked it was nt only unethical but illegal.  Anyone? Isn't this why the gov't stepped in with MA BELL?

I suspect this is not entirely upto myFICO but what TU is willing to sell to the consumers.   For example, EX scores are simply not available because Experian chose not to sell their FICO score at all to the consumers.  Of course, they themselves sell and resell (via other companies), their FAKOs.

Re: Why do I get different fico scores for transunion

I do not think credit bureaus give the consumer a break, also I think if you have a collection for 14  dollars a debt that I knew nothing about, should not be allowed to drop your score, I would have gladly payed that money, not it is a collection on my credit report, there should be some lines drawn, 1 late credit card payment should last maybe 2 years instead of 7 ,we can't control everything that goes on in our lives but we are punished for it, the credit bureaus need to be overhauled


myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
