How do you know that the score provided by Equifax is a Fico Score? I looked at the credit score packages that they offer and I don't see Fico listed in any of the verbiage.
I see the following disclaimer: "The Equifax® Credit Score and 3-Bureau credit scores are based on the Equifax Credit Score model. Third parties use many different types of credit scores and will not use the Equifax Credit Score or 3-Bureau credit scores to assess your creditworthiness."

Interesting, if both scores are indeed Fico I'm not sure what could be causing the discrepancy. I rely on MyFico for my scores, but I can see Ficos reported on a few of my cards. I always look for the registered trademark symbol if I'm unsure - FICO®
I do see a page on Equifax that mentions Fico score 5 model, so it could be the case that you are comparing a Fico Score 5 model on Equifax and a Fico Score 8 model on MyFico. It's in the fine print at the bottom of this screenshot. There are many differnent Fico versions for Equifax, TransUnion and Experian. You can try comparing your Equifax Fico with your Equifax Fico 5 here in Myfico to see if they match.
I paid for the original subscription and after that i saw an option to get the fico score for 10 dollars so today i checked it. It says fico score specifically. Once i saw the difference in scores it was the first thing i went back and double checked.
If I were you I would scrap all services that charge anything more than $1 for your FICO scores. You can get all three FICO 8 scores from the $1 trial offer at Credit Check Total. And the trial offer can be repeated every month.
There are also places you can go to get your FICO scores for free -- not even a $1 charge.
