And we've going back and forth on whether to take part in this because supposedly if you sign up for this you give up your right to sue Equifax.I was just wondering what others think about this, and if they anyone has signed up?Thank you!
I signed up personally as my info may have been compromised and I was not made aware, during that process, that I was giving up any rights to sue.Thanks
Hello Christine,I apologize for a late reply to your inquiry. Unfortunately, there is very little that can be done to protect against this particular identity theft. The free offer of Fraud Alert Monitoring is for one year only. Most criminals will wait for a couple of years, or more, before attempting to use the stolen data.Personal identity information does not get expunged easily, however, making some of the information obsolete may help serve as a warning sign to potential creditors. For example; Open a new bank account and close the old one, have your credit cards replaced, use a post-office mailbox with a different zip code as your mailing address, etc.Enclosed link is an article from Consumer Report that you may find useful. "Equifax Breach: What you can do to protect yourself".Hopefully, the Congress will mandate a policy that would require credit monitoring companies to send out free notification each time an individual's personal information is accessed or changed, much like Google, or the credit card companies do.Regards,Varoujan AdamianPrincipal ConsultantNoravandBurbank, CA(818) email@example.com
