Why no Experian included with myFICO?

Just curious as to why only Equifax and TransUnion are the only scores here. Doesn't Experian matter too? Do creditors just not use Experian as much as the other two? My lowest score is with Experian and it's a big difference from the higher scores I get here with myFICO's two. Thank you.

Re: Why no Experian included with myFICO?

Just noticed some posts about Experian being fake. I'm getting mine from experian.com. I assume cancelling is recommended? However I just issued 2 disputes with items on my report there. I'm afraid the disputes won't get processed if I cancel my membership mid-review. Even if the score I see is the fake "Plus" score, I hope if the disputes go in my favor, my true Experian score, wherever that is hidden, will benefit. So no way to know my true Exp score? Thank you.

Hello and welcome.

 

For whatever reason Experian decided in 2/2009 to stop selling their FICO to any consumer from any source. Creditors can pull Experian and also there is a CU (PSECU) in Pennsylvania that supplies that information to it's members only.

 

 

 

From a BK years ago to:
EX - 3/11 pulled by lender- 835, EQ - 2/11-816, TU - 2/11-782

You can always just ignore the Plus score from Experian, but keep their credit monitoring service.    Unfortunately there is no correlation from FAKO scores back to FICO scores, so you won't be able to guess or infer anything about one from the other.

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.
