TransUnion used to use FICO (Fair Isaac) but now uses their own credit scoring system (which is strikingly similar - it seems that TU just didn't want to pay to use the FICO name, for the most part). CK gets their score directly from TransUnion, using TU's CURRENT scoring system: it is NOT your FICO score.

Hope that helps!

It is a TU score it is called their TransRisk score.

my tu score from the main site is different,i wonder why?

At the beginning of the year they moved to the Vantage Score. That score has a range off 550-990.
