Important information regarding the Equifax data breach

Monday, September 18, 2017

Equifax, a consumer credit reporting agency, recently announced that a data breach could potentially impact 143 million U.S. consumers. The breach occurred from mid-May to July of this year. While the breach has been contained by Equifax, information obtained includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver’s license numbers. In some cases, credit card numbers were also accessed. You can view updated information on this incident from Equifax at
