Re: SW SCORES

Yes it should tell you the new score, are you sure its not?  When you go to the member center, what is the score that is on the front page?

Current Score: 6/2614 TU 624; EQ 635; EX 610
Goal Score:  625 for now– New goal 675

Cap1 sec $700 (SD) / FP $300 (closed) / Fingerhut $1300 / nRewards $2.5k / cashRewards $1.5k / NavChek $2.5k
Amazon $1.7k / Walmart $1k / Von Maur $200 /Firestone $1.2k (last app 10/08/13)

Re: SW SCORES

The alert says:

Alert:Your FICO® score has dropped below your target score of 610

But shows no score lower than 610. The member center front page says my score is 610.

EX FICO 677 -4/1
EQ FICO 672 - 4/1
TU FICO 654 - 4/11

You might want to call them then, cause that's wrong.

Re: SW SCORES

It could be the timing of your alerts. I've received alerts similar to that whereby myFICO dropped one day and increased the next which resulted in weird alerts like that. Either it happened so fast, like a day apart, where I didn't yet receive a credit alert for the change or perhaps your score dropped due to a reason which wouldn't be picked up by SW, like an added balance, dropped TL, increased util not exceeding the limits in your settings, etc. For best results, always set your target score to exactly match your current EQ FICO. That will cut down on some of those odd alerts because you'll be alerted more often.


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.
