Equifax Data Breach Update
Who remembers that fateful day in September 2017 when Equifax, one of the three credit bureaus in the United States, announced a massive data breach affecting over 148 million Americans? Equifax has just agreed to a settlement with the Federal Trades Commission (FTC) and you can join in the settlement, if you choose. They are offering free credit monitoring, cash settlement, or cash payments to assist with payments you made as direct result from the data breach.
It is encouraged for everyone to check their available options and select the best choice for you. It is important to read all the documentation associated with the choices as they may have caveats to follow to be eligible for compensation.
