Vantage score 3.0 is now based on a scale of 300 to 850 why does CK base scores on 990? that's wrong
How could a site responsible for providing consumer credit information not be using the most up to date models to calculate our credit scores? Vantage 3.0 was revised by the 3 major bureaus in 2013 to be more similar to the FICO model which uses a scale of 300-850 instead of 500-990 to give consumers a more comparable model to that of FICO which is the industry leader in providing consumer credit information to business and banking institutions.

My Vantage score is substantially understated due to the fact that it is being calculated on an outdated model. Other sites like and are using Vantage 3.0 get with the program CK!
