The score from TransUnion.com is a FAKO called a VantageScore. It runs on a scale of 501-990.
The score from Experian.com is also a FAKO. They offer two FAKOs: a PLUS score and a VantageScore.
Nobody uses a PLUS score. A teeny tiny minority use Vantage. There are one or two out there that'll touch it.
Ignore both, IMO.
The Score from Equifax.com would either be a FICO or a FAKO. They sell FAKOs, and they tend to hide links to their FICO. If it doesn't say "FICO" next to the score, then it isn't.
