Re: Unable to obtain a FICO Score

I think due to privacy they don't discuss items like this via e-mail, or that would be my guess anyway. 

 

Check with your score from Equifax.com. The score they push is not a FICO score. It's a FAKO called an "Equifax Credit Score". Now they do offer a FICO, they promote their own instead. If it doesn't say "FICO" next to the score then it isn't. Likewise, check for "FICO" next to your Experian score. A few years ago, Experian blocked consumer access to your own EX FICO. You cannot buy it from anywhere, though your lender can get it for you. Also, there are some banks and CUs out there that will give it to you for free as part of a service or benefit.
