AG's office warns of scammers saying they are from Equifax

FrontPageVideoEquifax Firms of the size of Equifax aren’t going to change their behaviour for $100,000 fines' says Shipley

During the recent data breach at Equifax, a USA -based credit rating firm, files containing information on almost 0.4 mn consumers in the United Kingdom were accessed, told the United Kingdom arm of the company.

That letter also talks about charges by credit reporting companies for freezing a consumer's credit - a move many many people are considering that move because of the Equifax data breach.

The process may seem like a hassle, but Ten Haagen says it's less of a hassle than trying to fix your credit once thieves start opening credit cards with your information.

The company has been swamped with consumers' efforts to freeze their credit profiles in the wake of the data breach, according to consumer experts and people who have tried.

"The people of SC are angry about this breach and the potential for identity theft", Wilson said. It will not prevent a thief from using any of your existing accounts. The state attorneys general launched their investigation shortly following Equifax's disclosure of the breach of consumer files earlier this summer.

"What we're saying is credit reporting agencies should be regulated the same way we regulate banks and credit institutions", Cuomo said.

"If this gets in the wrong hands, it could be used by people to take out a mortgage or a line of credit in your name, and you could be in a world of hurt as a result of that", O'Higgins told CTV News Channel on Tuesday. "As we continue our investigation into the Equifax breach, it's vital to ensure that consumer data at the other major credit reporting agencies is safe". Whether or not your information was stolen, Equifax is also offering consumers one year of free credit monitoring services.

"Consumers should make sure that they are accessing the correct website through the correct Equifax link", said General Hood.

However, Reeve says if you freeze your credit, at some point you may want to "unfreeze" it and that may or may not necessarily be easy.

"There's a number of things they can do", said Thompson.
