Experian will now offer FICO credit scores through its direct-to-consumer products, the Costa Mesa, Calif.-based credit bureau announced today.

The FICO scores are being added as a companion offering to Experian's timelines, reports, and identity fraud assistance. FICO scores are used in 90% of credit decisions, Experian said in the release.

"FICO Scores are used by lenders more than any other credit score, and we now offer them to our members as a complement to the Experian credit reports and other credit resources that are part of our consumer products," Guy Abramo, president of Experian consumer services, said in a Dec. 29 press release.
