Credit Score calculation.
I was on this sight to see my credit score in anticipation of completing a refinance. The score through your website is 673 as of yesterday; however, the scores that was actually in the reports pulled today were 566, 594, and 589. Can you please explain to me how the score you provided was produced? It is unfortunate that it is so far from accurate and wasted a considerable amount time for both me and the people I was looking to refinance with.

It is unfortunate that this website is more concerned with making dollars off advertisements and misleading information in their presentation rather than providing a customer service tool that is available for direct information. Again, a waste of time and energy on a VERY misleading representation of a product.

This is the verbiage below the score:
TransUnion® New Account Score. This score ranges from 300 to 850. It's calculated by TransUnion, one of the three major credit bureaus. The New Account Score is used by lenders to assess your creditworthiness, or the likelihood that you'll repay your debts. Learn more about different credit scores.

In the Learn More, there is NO reference to FICO vs. FAKEO and there isn't a location on this site that states there is a difference. With the constant bombarding of vehicle loans and credit card offers, it is clear to see the creator of this site is truly looking for dollars and is not available to provide an accurate service as advertised...
