Differences in FICO Scores

I have credit watch with both MyFICO and TrueCredit, but my Equifax score on TrueCredit is two points higher than the Equifax score on MyFICO, can someone explain why the dfference in scores although they are with the same credit bureau?

Read the FAKO vs FICO in the Credit 101 thread.

Nobody can explain this, 40. The short answer is they use different scoring models.  The score you get from TC frankly isn't worth the paper you print it on. Use TC to keep track of accounts.  
 
My EQ score from TC is 99 points lower than FICO.
 
Any correlation between TC and MyFICO scores is purely coincidental.

Two points is actually about as close as anyone will ever see their FAKO's and FICO's, and that's pretty much coincidence. You're one rare critter! Smiley Happy
