Equifax Breach: Take Steps Now to Manage the Risk
On September 7 it was announced that Equifax® was attacked by a cybersecurity breach that resulted in the exposure of an estimated 143 million consumers’ private information. This breach includes consumers’ names, SSNs, birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers, as well as 209,000 stolen card numbers and private data from 182,000 stolen dispute documents.
Here is what the professionals are recommending you do:
Closely monitor all credit accounts and loans and report any suspicious activity on any one of those accounts.
Sign up for fraud alerting services offered by the three credit bureaus to receive notifications about potentially fraudulent activity:
Sign up for free credit monitoring services, to monitor and report unauthorized activity.
Place a freeze on all three credit bureau accounts to prevent fraudsters from opening new accounts.
Just know if you place a freeze on your account, you must unfreeze it before applying for credit which doesn’t happen immediately and in some (most) cases the bureau will charge a fee for freezing and unfreezing your account.
