Yep, that's because CK is TransUnion and creditscore.com is I think Experian or is it Equifax?  Anyway, each credit bureau has their own "vantage" or "plus" score.  It's just a game they all play to try and keep us consumers confused and a way to charge us for information that should be free.  Just remember that any score you get for free is just a tool or guideline.  It doesn't mean anything to anyone but you.  The only scores that really count are your FICO scores.  You can get your FICO scores if you are willing to pay for them by visiting www.myfico.com.  Otherwise, you have to wait until you apply for a mortgage or some other credit to see what your FICO score is.  It's a crummy system.  To learn more, you can also check out www.credit.about.com.
