No, they're probably thinking of the semi-new Vantage score. The credit bureaus are trying to create an alternative to FICO's, so they came up with this one, which combines all three reports, so that there's only one score.
Definitely not a FICO, and not much used anywhere that I've been able to find.
As the others said, you have three separate and independent FICO scores, each derived from info on your three reports, and each one using a different formula commissioned by each bureau (one reason why they can be so different.)
* Credit is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. * Who's the boss --you or your credit? FICO's: EQ 781 - TU 793 - EX 779 (from PSECU) - Done credit hunting; having fun with credit gardening. - EQ 590 on 5/14/2007
