And if you see CK, that's Credit Karma. Example: My TU FICO on my Discover statement was 687, but CK has me at 730 even though they also pull from TU; just goes to show how reliable FAKOs are.
Hopefully that makes sense now
Ha ha... I had to scroll up 5 times to look at the glossary in order to understand the above sentence! Thanks for the word problem!
I agree about making a wiki sticky of the glossary, which is why I will continue to bump this thread to the top of the list every time I learn a new acronym. Eventually, the powers that be around here will likely see the merit in combining all the different additions to this thread into one comprehensive single dictionary that will be a nice tool to navigate through the lingo.
I understand the modern trend of abbreviating everything. It likely is going to continue, with more people using handheld mobile devices to communicate, even on websites such as this. Yet, coming from an older generation, it is hard for me to relinquish the redundancy that is was taught in my schooling, in the interest of unquestioned clarity.
Thanks again for all of the explanations, and please keep the acronyms coming.... I'm sure it will help every newcomer who participates on this forum.
