Mine is 799. Detractors are inquires, lack of mortgage and open balances.

Wut? Because I don't have half a million in debt my credit score is punished?

Only balances I have are visa cards and they get paid every month in full. I demand a higher score!

I wouldn't put too much stock into that if your rating is 800. Its probably generated automatically. Mine says presence of inquiry and balance on open mortgage account, whatever that means.

It's not 800 it's 799. My RFD street cred is in shambles right now.

So why is the different address from 9months ago still showing & has not been updated to the correct one used on the 3-4 more recent apps?
Good question. Perhaps it doesn't take place instantly, or the lenders you applied to doesn't take the time to send the update to the bureaus.

Heh, finally working for me. Full 900: "You currently have no negative score factors impacting your credit score"

Time to cash everything in on pumpkin futures!
I've got a pretty good friend who's seen me at my worst.
He don't care if I'm a blessing or a curse,
But he always shows up when the chips are down.
That's the kind of friend I like to be around.

I checked my TU score via RBC online banking and holy smokes, talk about a difference in scores between Credit Karma and this one.
It's about 100 points with the RBC one so it makes me wonder what's up with CK?

why do you assume CK has an issue vs RBC's model.

Because people don't realize there are MANY credit scoring models on the market these days, all designed to predict different outcomes, and therefore will vary in score points, even by as much as 100+ points.
TransUnion TransRisk is usually on the low end for most people compared to other scores, so when someone sees a higher score elsewhere from a different model, they assume something is wrong with TransUnion/Credit Karma TransRisk Score model.
But there is nothing wrong with either score. They're designed to predict different outcomes, in different time frames, with varying factors weighing differently with all of them. Hence all the different scores.

I just logged in to my RBC account and saw that they were offering access to my credit report.

Full details here:

It's actually pretty slick; you can see how different actions such as carrying balances, getting a new credit card, late payments, etc. would affect your credit score.
If you're with RBC, log in and check it out!

Ah, woops. I actually did a search before posting but somehow missed that. Thanks and apologies for the duplicate post.

I get an error when I try to access the report. It goes to the website and when I select continue it spits out an error stating: Credit Bureau Not Responding: The credit bureau's system may be temporarily unavailable.
I suspect it has something to do with my name, but RBC said no its just not available to me yet. The reason I think its my name is because I have my given name and legal name on my profile in this format: Legal Name (given name) Last Name. I think that transfer of info is messing up. Just a guess. Any thoughts?
