are a lot of scams out there these days, none that we find as frustrating
though as the infamous online credit score! Here we have one of the all-time
greatest inventions to rip off the average consumer, why isn’t anybody creating
a fuss about such a magnificent scam? The reason is because almost nobody
understands how it all works and the powers to be keep it all very hush hush.
many people have checked their scores lines online at some point? There is no
great data on this but we are thinking the majority of everyone has checked
their scores online. Now, out of all these millions of people, how many could
use these exact scores for lending purposes? We are going to go with 0, give or
take. This is due to the fact that online scoring models, even the ones
provided by the bureaus themselves, are completely different from the scoring
models that lenders use when a loan is being applied for. This makes the
average online and the credit bureau’s scoring models completely worthless.
is this legal you may ask? They don’t claim they are giving a FICO lending
approved scores, they are saying is what "we" calculate your score to
be, based on our system. Even on the rare occasion if they use a FICO model,
there are over 50 of those scoring algorithms created so it’s unlikely to be
the one your lender is using. Some of the online scores are so off it seems
like a bad joke, like Transunion direct source who is Truecredit, their score
range goes from an 501 to a 999 so you easily see yourself with an 800 or 900
but that doesn’t mean it’s worth the paper it’s printed on.
laughable aspect about this system is that you notice how a consumer never
applies for a loan only to find out that their score is actually much higher
than what they recently pulled online. In fact the average online score is
roughly 40 points higher than what you see through a lender. The conspiracy
theory behind this is that the better score you show someone on average, the
more people you will attract to your website through referrals.
is one to do? I tell you what, we happen to specialize in the scoring models
and algorithms used by mortgage professionals and lenders. A fun test to give
us will be to tell us over the phone which credit provider you are using to
pull credit through and we instantly will be able to tell you the exact
algorithm models you are using. When securing loans in the credit repair world,
understanding exactly how the scores are calculated is most of the battle.
