Really, its not a FICO score? What is it? I do know that it is the same score I received from other sources. Please let me know...
CreditKarma gets all of their data and scores from TrueCredit (aka TrueLink...that's the data provider), as evidenced by all of the TC links on their website. CK's score is a FAKO called a TransRisk score. Here's what CK's provider, TrueCredit, says about the provided score:
TrueLink is not connected in any way with Fair, Isaac and Company; the credit score provided here is not a so-called FICO score.
If you pulled CK's score today and the TU FICO from this website, you'll see two different scores.
Aside from myFICO, the only place you can pull your own TU FICO score is via transunioncs.com (note the -cs).
ConcordUser, here's the press release on this from PSECU:
I signed up for myfico.com because I read an article on MSN that reported myfico as the only place to purchase your actual fico score...myfico is the only source I trust based mostly on that article. I joined in March this year to try to get a handle on my credit report so I could hopefully buy a house someday. I think that every credit company (TU, EX, & EQ) should give you your true fico score every month, quarter, 6 months, or at least each year. But that is a pipe dream as it is hard enough just to get them to give you your credit report (even with annualcreditreport.com I have had my share of hurdles to jump)
I think that your bank/credit union in the perfect avenue for the credit bureaus to deliver your fico to you, afterall it is my score and I think I am entitled to see it and repair it when needed! I look forward to this coming to fruition!
slowly building my scores.....
3/09 TU: 576 EQ: 564 EX: 572
6/09 TU: 590 EQ: 578 EX: ???
