What gives.... CK Transunion score VS MYFICO score?
On May 2, 2013 I went to My FICO, signed up during their free trial period (cancel a week later) and my score was 794. On the same date my CK Transunion score was 685. After 8 years with no credit, I now have 2 major credit cards, a KOHLs card and a $25,000.00 Chase auto loan with 3 Equifax inquiries (6 Transunion inquiries). 1 ½ years ago I came off the credit bureaus 7 year black list. (Spotless credit file since) With a CK score of 685 I rate as a fair chance to be approve for most of the good credit cards using the CK rating system. Are the Banks look at the CK scoring model for my credit card review or are they using the 794 out of 850 FICO scoring model?
