I made that mistake with Experian a few years ago. They claimed they sold FICO scores but really sold the PLUS score. I was in a dispute with them for a few days because I had purchased the bureau 3-1 report/score and they were all FAKO scores (I didn't know that at the time). A lender eventually pulled my scores and informed me my scores were much lower than I had thought which caused me not to get a loan at the APR I had initially anticipated. I was subsequently refunded half the cost of the report due to their lack of properly displaying information on their website.
FICO scores: 763 (EQ) 740 (EX) 751 (TU) | Goal scores: 750+ (all 3)
Open loans: Hyundai Motor Finance - $8k balance remaining | 60 months @ 4.9% (First Time Buyer 12/2012)
Tradelines: Capital One (5k) | Macy's (1.1k) | Living Spaces (8.5k) | Ashley (5.5k) | Discover IT (2k) | Walmart Discover (3k) | Chase Freedom NPSL | Citi Simplicity (8.0k)
