Kohls using VantageScore?

Hit the luv button on my Kohl's card (hoping to bump it up from $1500), 7-10 day message.

Letter said "Credit Bureau Information Missing" (Extended Fraud Alert - no phone number)

 

Gave me a score of 793 (EX) on a scale of 501 - 990 which is an older version of VantageScore.  I didn't know Capital One to use anything but FICO for CLI requests so it was news to me.

Re: Kohls using VantageScore?

In previous times that CO did not provide a FICO score (which they usually do), I believe it was determined that this was an internal score.  501-990 is the original VantageScore range which was later replaced by VS2 (then 3 and now 4), and it would be quite strange to learn that any systems were still even capable of generating a VS1 score.  Most likely the range is coincidental, and it is an internal risk score.
