Re: fico score

The majority of lenders use the FICO score. To get the score that is accurate and many lenders use you want to make sure you only purchase the scores from My Fico. The scores available at the various CRA's are FAKO scores as they use a different scoring model. They can range from as little as a few points different to 100 points different than the FICO scores.

Good luck and Welcome to the boards.
