Equifax Security Breach
The recent Equifax security breach compromised names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, credit card numbers and driver’s license numbers. Our annual, gentle reminders to keep a watchful eye on credit reports have turned urgent.
There are several good articles on what to do now, we sent out a link to a good Wall Street Journal article through our FaceBook and LinkedIn pages, this Consumer Reports article is my favorite so far.
It is being reported that the website Equifax set up to help has been swamped, and phone calls are nearly impossible to get through. Keep trying, and in the meantime we recommend that you take the steps recommended in the Consumer Reports article.
