BOA site offers Fico scores?

Anyone who has a BOA card, can you answer this please.  I just signed up to handle my account online and they are offering a quarterly review of all 3 CR and scores for $12.99 a month.  Does anyone know if these are fako or real fico scores from their site?
I finally made the 700 club, now 800 club, watch out - Here I come!

If you are talking about BOA privacy assist then it's the fako scores.  I signed up for the free trial period and the scores were way off from what MYfico had......

Re: BOA site offers Fico scores?

I tried BofA Privacy Assist to check it out.

The scores are FAKO, the website is horribly ugly, it doesn't offer anything myFICO doesn't, and the identity theft feature is no better than the equivalent from myFICO.

I canceled after 1 day, even though I'm a fairly loyal BofA customer in most respects.
