Can dealerships lie to you about your credit score?

Do dealers lie about credit? I was buying a car and when the dealer pulled my credit score, they said it was 688. I know for a fact it's 707.

“Before you get stressed out or angry, the dealer may not be lying to you at all.
Dealers will use one of three credit agencies (TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax) to pull your credit score.
This just might mean that they used your Experian score and you only know your Equifax score.
With the ability to get your credit score for free online, just print out your credit reports and bring them to avoid any sticky situations such as this.”
