The score from equifax website is the beacon 5? The one used for mortgages?
Is the one posted on myfico from equifax marked as beacon 5 mortgage score accurate?
I ask because mine are very very different.
I thought the score from equifax was a fako?
You probably bought the credit score (educational) that EQ also peddles.
The Score Power and Score Watch products are the real deal EQ Beacon 5.0 scores.
Who does use the Fico 08?? It's the hieghest number and fastest to go up but it's kinda misleading if no creditors use it.
From what I've been reading, a lot of lenders are moving toward using that one. I don't know how soon or how many are doing it, but I know the dealership told me what score some of the lenders were sending back with their offers were my actual FICO8s (and as you pointed out, the highest and were the ones with the lowest interest rate)
Most major CC issuers have long since moved to FICO 8. Smaller companies (my own employwer just switched 3ish months ago) are too. Outside of the mortgage and auto loan worlds, FICO 8 is the most common absolutely.
Many CU's that we're familiar with on this forum still underwrite on the older models still.
