Generally, the only way to get a report that includes your FICO is to go to a lending broker and have them run it for you.

You’re right, these are not included in the normal consumer report. They are used by lenders to determine your creditworthyness.

A good score is about 670 plus. (They can go as high as the 900’s, but that’s rare for most of us)

I keep reading about FICO and Beacon scores. I know what they are and how they are used BUT I do not know what mine is or how to get mine. A friend of mine has told me that the credit bureaus dont want you to know what it is and they dont put it on consumer reports so what gives?
