Equifax settlement

$700 million settlement. If you were affected, you could receive a settlement. With little documentation if you spent 10 hours trying to straighten up their mess, you could receive $250. If you spent a lot more time and have documentation you could settle for a lot more. For some people this has been a real pain, locking, unlocking your credit changing passwords getting turned down for credit etc. If you got hacked, then I think that settlement would be much more. Hopefully they got their act together.

Plus future monitoring for 10 years or $125 for others to monitor your credit.

Just filed claim for $125. very easy to do on line. Also for my wife. Probably any person in the country that has a social security number should file this claim set up by the courts. This is for either credit monitoring or cash. I chose a check.

Wonder by the time the lawyers get their slice and depending on the number of people claiming their slice, if the postage is worth more the the check coming. Just a thought the way the real world works.

Hope most people do, if nothing else, for the credit monitoring into the future. They know they screwed up, and it affected a lot of people and that is going to hang out there for a very very long time.

Unfortunately for me it’s my bank and my credit card company.

Actually I had been thinking of closing my American Express card and going to Capital One prior to the breech for a no fee, better perks card. Now, no way, no how. Man this is going to cost them in so many ways. I feel for your vulnerability.

FTC: Equifax might run out of cash, so please take the credit monitoring.

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/07/31/ftc-...onitoring.html

Well, they should have hit equifax up for much more money for their outrages practices. Better yet, they should probably should be fined enough to send a real message. Obviously a small slap on the hand like facebooks 5 billion fine (which in the scheme of things and their revenue was outrageously lowball.)

I'm sure your letter to the "Walmarts" execs will cause them to reconsider their $9 billion deal.

If everyone hasn't frozen their credit with the big 3, they should do so now.

Yeah, I am sure it will.....uh huh...but if enough people cancel their cards......maybe their contract is not so brilliant. That contract with capitol one was signed way before the hack was known. Believe or not, Walmrt usual respond back with a email or some sort.....which will probably be worthless, which I expect. I do not need a capital one card through walmart, and I am pretty sure a lot of other people don't either.....but their choice and comfort level dealing with capitol one. I did not apply for this card changing to capitol one....so it will be gone after the transition is done. I Have dealt with synchrony bank on many levels (on line savings etc) and with several credit cards with synchrony and have never had a problem with them over the years so I will probably find another card that they sponsor.

What company will be hacked next in the hacking lotto out there.

It was a royal pain in the you know what the past several months locking and unlocking my credit getting a new mortgage. It was a major hassle and caused some problems and delays, but eventually got straightened out. A head ache I would not want to repeat anytime soon.
