Same day credit pull, 2 different scores


The score on the left is from http://www.creditkarma.com and the score on the right is from http://www.Equifax.com .

The scores were pulled on the same date, but the difference in score is 27 points.

The Credit Karma site uses a “Vantage 3.0” scoring model, the Equifax site uses an “Equifax Credit Score™”.

If you are applying for a mortgage or auto loan, most banks in the U.S. use a “FICO” score to approve your loan.  The credit scores on Credit Karma and Equifax.com are not a FICO score.  The only site on the internet that will sell you a “Mortgage FICO score” or an “Auto loan FICO score” is http://www.myfico.com .
