Credit scores are lower than Credit Karma shows.
If this company really wants to help people monitor their credit why not give and accurate report. I have been to several different lenders from different states and was told my scores by those lenders and all theirs matched so why is yours different? I saw the copy and past response but I would like a legitimate answer! If this is done to push high interest loans and cards then credit Karma should be ashamed of themselves!

If you took the time to do a little reading you would find that Credit Karma gives Vantage Scores, but most lenders will use a version of FICO scores. I do understand your confusion and frustration as all the Credit Karma commercials make it sound like there is only one credit score for people and they give it. But if you take the time to navigate the website and do some reading you will see that it is clearly stated in many areas that Vantage is given here. Take some time to do some reading on the different scoring models for credit, always look to see what type of score you are getting when you get one and remember there are many different versions of FICO scores and three separate credit bureaus to provide them, so there are many different FICO scores as well, but most lenders will use a version of FICO.
