Walmart Free FICO score

How accurate is this score? I've had a Walmart card for years and found out today they offer this, but it's not even close

to my other scores. I ordered my scores from equifax today and got 3 numbers. here's breakdown :

Walmart Fico - 715

creditscore.com - 591

creditkarma - 651

credit sesame - 645

Pulled from Equifax today:

Equifax - 712

Trans - 641

Experian - 578

 

I'm SOOO confused!

True Credit is an transunion fako , so i woudn't take it too seriously, the thing i would concentrate more on is whats actually on your credit report not the score.
