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!

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