I am rebuilding my credit and pulled my credit report last week from myprotect Id:
It was TU: 642, EQ 639, and EX 638. But, when I pulled it from myfico the score was $588. Why such a drastric difference? Felt like deflated baloon.

Unfortunately there are FICO scores and then there are everyone else. We call these non-FICO scores FAKOs. Most of the services out there sell scores, but as you experienced they aren't FICO scores. These other scores have different score ranges than FICO and factor in stuff that FICO does not and vice-versa. No lenders use the scores offered by that service.

I had a similar experience. I looked on CreditKarma and my scores were over 700. then I got my real TU score from walmart and it was 519. That was a bummer. The scores that really matter are real fico scores. You should figure out which real fico score you got also. You list it as if it is separate from the CRA whereas in fact that fico score you list is associated with one of the credit reporting agencies. Each one has a credit report for you which is unique and a corresponding FICO score which is unique.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
