FICO vs. FAKO – Share your FAKO stories

Re: FICO vs. FAKO – Share your FAKO stories

So my recent CK scores were 683 and 697. I applied for a mortgage this week and my scores were 676, 693, 709. Not too far off.

 

My wife recent CK scores were 677, 675. Her mortgage scores were 680, 712, 705. Big Difference esp regarding the TU and Exp scores. My FICO scores are usually higher than my CK scores. True Identity last showed me at 704, 710, 708 and my wife at 701, 696, 710.

Hi everyone,

 

First of all, thanks to all of you who shared your credit confusion stories. It’s been incredibly valuable to hear about your experiences with other types of credit scores and how your FICO® Scores compared.

 

We think it’s extremely important for people to understand the difference between FICO Scores and non-FICO Scores in order to manage their financial health effectively. Your stories are a critical part of helping people understand the difference.

 

I’m excited to announce the launch of FICOScore.com and FICOScore.com/stories! FICOScore.com is a purely educational website providing educational content about FICO Scores. FICOScore.com/stories is a community-driven sister site that allows people to read credit confusion stories, like and share stories they find useful, and submit their own non-FICO score experiences.

 

You’ll notice that we used some of the stories seen here. If you have any concerns or would like yours edited, please don’t hesitate to contact me via PM.

And for those of you who haven’t posted, I encourage you to go to FICOScore.com/stories and share your credit confusion experiences.
