Equifax Data Breach

One of the largest security breaches ever was reported by Equifax yesterday.  Over 143 million records have been accessed.  This information could allow criminals to create or takeover accounts for many of the impacted individuals.

Equifax has setup a website to offer website (https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com) offering credit monitoring and indentity theft protection. 

THE COMPANY IS ONLY DIRECTLY NOTIFYING THE PEOPLE WHOSE CREDIT CARD INFO OR DISPUTE DOCUMENTS WERE LEAKED, SO REGISTERING ON THE WEBSITE (https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com) OR CALLING ITS HOTLINE (866-447-7559) MAY BE THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW FOR SURE IF YOU WERE IMPACTED.
