Which one is the "real" EX score?

I'm so confused about all of these scores! A couple weeks ago, I was logged into the EX site viewing my report, and there was a tab that said Score or something to that effect. I believe it was a Vantage Score. So I purchased it for about $8. Now this was within EX, not a third party site. That actually malfunctioned but then I called EX the next day and the CSR read my score to me over the phone and it was 664.
Now today I go to EX and there's a completely different report layout and score available for $1 for a 7 day trial. I paid for it, planning to cancel after I get the score anyway. It says
Your Experian© Score is:(as of 11/8/2012)
Again, this is from within EX, but it doesn't say anything about Vantage anywhere. There's no way I dropped over 64 points in two weeks, and I've studied my report to see if there's anything different. Other than a new CC account, there's nothing else.
So which is the real score? If that Vantage score was not real, why was EX selling it?
