For too long, consumers receiving something other than a FICO Score have been given the impression that what they’re getting is widely used by lenders, when in fact it is not. All consumers, especially those restoring their financial health, deserve to see how banks actually view them. We applaud Progrexion’s efforts to provide consumers the best possible experience, including the industry-leading FICO Score.”
