AMEX Credit Source vs. MyFico

why does my CS from AMEX have the score as 722 and MyFico reports 664?  huge difference, are the PLUS scores as they are called at AMEX CS actual FICO scores or are they FAKOs?  confused as to which is the true score.

CS is an Experian Plus Score- it's a FAKO

wow, thanks.  I signed up for the CS 2 days ago, guess bad investment.  I think I can cancel.  I'll stick with MyFico for all my needs for sure.  great forum, very helpful, so many scenarios and may questions.

Before you're quick to cancel your CS subscription, remember that CS allows you to pull your reports every single day for only $12 a month.  The reports are actually very good.  You just need to remember to ignore the scores that come with them.

Re: AMEX Credit Source vs. MyFico

Thanks, good point.  I was just looking at the products offered by MyFico, I have the ScoreWatch, which doesn't give the other 2 reports.  I will keep CS for a bit just to keep the pulling anytime feature.
