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?

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.
