|As you may or may not know, we have experienced another major industry data breach, this time from Equifax. Reportedly, hackers may have accessed personal information from 143 million Americans, including social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some cases driver’s license numbers. They also stole credit card numbers for about 209,000 people and dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 people.
It’s important to note that our vendor is Experian, and they have not been breached.
That being said, Equifax is the second largest bureau and most institutions report to them so there is a chance that your information has been compromised. Below are some tips for you to prevent any future problems from occurring:
We hope some of these tools will be useful to you if you have been affected by this breach.
