Seems like those with a freeze can pull EQ just fine. I know that if someone had a fraud alert then SW wouldn't work for them, and even a freeze on EX would stop myFICO from obtaining your EX FICO report.
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.
