Equifax, one of the world’s largest credit reporting agencies had a major data breach – affecting 143 million people (nearly half the US population). Released was personal data, and some 200,000 SS# and some credit card numbers.
You can go online here to check and see if you are affected. Equifax is also giving anyone that wants free identity theft monitoring for a year.
If nothing else, check yourself. My data was breached….!
