This pic is helpful with info and what to do
In general, one of the largest credit reporters had information containing names, SS#, drivers license IDs, birthdays, etc were hacked by some unknow entity. Imagine the information of 144 adult Americans is now loose for the entire world to see. Assuming the hackers have dumped or will dump this info. It's been nearly two months this info has been stolen so I'd at the very least put a security freeze with the 3 major credit reporters. This in turn will help avoid any new credit cards, loans, etc being opened in your name.
Also, keep an eye on your finances. Anything suspicious, act immediately.

Equifax has a website tbat asks for the last 6 of your social and your last name. From there it'll say either you may have been compromised or that you haven't.

After all that it asks you to sign up for their new program from a year for free. However once you formally sign up you waive all rights to be part of any lawsuit concerning the breach.

As Chief Executive Officer of HP from 1999 to 2005, Fiorina was the first woman to lead a Top-20 company as ranked by Fortune Magazine.[2] In 2002, Fiorina oversaw what was then the largest technology sector merger in history, in which HP acquired rival personal computer manufacturer, Compaq. The transaction made HP the world's largest seller of personal computers.[3][4] HP subsequently laid off 30,000 U.S. employees in order to save 80,000 jobs. The company then grew to 150,000.[5][6][7] In February 2005, she was forced to resign as CEO and Chair, following a boardroom disagreement.[8][9][10]

Reminder to short equifax stock, it's only going to get worse as the true consequences emerges in the next few months. top executives involved in the insider trading will get arrested/fined/jailed and the class action lawsuit which seems to be at 70 billion might completely destroy the company. Loss in revenue from people not trusting the company anymore will impact the stock too.

Also, invest in transunion, its the competing firm. There will most likely be a shift to transunion from equifax.

You can make quite a lot of money from this

the ODDS of your data being used is pretty darn low. not saying you shouldn't prepare or monitor it, but don't get all worried over it.

everyone is saying to file credit freezes - but depending on where you live, it will cost $40 ($10 per company) to put a freeze in place, and perhaps more to lift it temporarily. so you'll spend $40 every single time to put it in place, and in certain states (like Iowa), you pay $12 to lift it temporarily. you can remove it for free in most states. (but if you're a victim of ID theft you won't wanna do that)

what to do then:
1) keep copies of all your credit reports (4 now... ugh)
2) opt-out of all credit mailings (thieves can swipe these from your trash/mail box)
3) monitor all your accounts
4) if you notice something suspicious, immediately file a fraud alert with one company. unlike the "security freezes" these are free and you can do it with one company, which will notify the rest. (wonder why they don't do this with freezes...(((them))). it sticks for 90 days which should make companies call you directly if a new line of credit is opened up. you can put it in place for 7 years after that if needed.
5) you can file a police report (which is pointless, as cops can't do a thing) and give that to the credit company who will allow you to freeze your credit for free. you'll need to mail it all in of course.
6) if for some reason you can't freeze it online or over the phone - believe me, even if you give one company the right info and it allows you to freeze it, the next company might not (retarded) - you'll have to MAIL every single one to freeze or lift it. gigantic pain in the ass since lifting a freeze can take 3 business days. again, you'll need to do this every time you want a new credit card, loan, buying a car, or whatever.

this is all bullshit. let it rot.

Thank you
The information and your opinion is valid. However, I don't feel the same. Do you personally work within a field that exposes you to fraud often?

Bump because letting this rot simply isn't an option

How exactly so. I know everyone likes to think they're right. So I'm sincerely asking you this, what do you know makes you right. Because honestly, if you can logically give me a strong reason how this is a verified scam I'm all ears.

To be honest, I froze just because I decided... How often do I get a new credit card, buy a car etc?

Not very. I pay cash for as much as possible and don't buy beyond my means sans car (that I have) and home. When I want to apply for something it's only 1 company that they will ping, so if it's not something that I'm willing to spend $10 and wait 3 days for to get my credit checked... Do I really need it?
