61 points in the negative difference CK to FICO
CK reported I was at 725; I decided to try and get a real CC. I selected the CK recommended Citibank CC; CK stated my chances are Very Good. The CC was denied, a week later the rejection letter from Citibank states my real FICO score is 664 and not the 725 CK shows, a 61 point difference; this is unacceptable that these two numbers are so far off. I realize CK is a guide to help people restore their credit but 61 points in the negative how is that even the slightest bit of help?
