There are different credit scores, but not different “levels” of credit reports

Dear Experian,

My Experian report says my score is 781. A credit card company said my score from Experian was 720 five days earlier. They said I may be receiving a different level of reports. Does Experian report different scores with a wide range of numbers?

The difference between PLUS scores and FICO scores

Dear Experian,

What is the difference between a “Plus” score and a “FICO” score? On a June credit report from Experian my Plus score was 790 (330-830), while my FICO score with Experian was 889 (300-850). I realize both scores are excellent, but I would like to understand it further.
