The credit score sold at the spoofed Experian website FreeCreditReport.com is the PLUS Score. Experian states:
Your PLUS Score is formulated using the information in your credit file. It is modeled after the hundreds of commercial credit scores that help potential lenders, landlords, and employers quickly gauge your credit history and decide what kind of a risk they might be taking if they approve your application.
