In Wake of Equifax Data Breach, All Californians Should Sign up for Free Credit Monitoring by Wednesday’s Deadline

Sacramento, CA...California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today reminded all Californians that the deadline to sign up for free credit monitoring is Wednesday, January 31. In September, Equifax, one of the nation’s three major credit reporting agencies, announced that it had suffered a massive data breach, which affected 145 million Americans and over 15 million Californians. According to Equifax, the breach lasted from mid-May through July, and compromised names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers.





The Equifax data breach left millions of Californians’ personal information vulnerable. While the California Department of Justice continues to aggressively investigate this massive cybersecurity incident, we urge all consumers – both those who were victims of the breach and those who were not – to take advantage of the free credit monitoring that is available to them,” said Attorney General Becerra. “To enroll in free credit monitoring, Californians should visit https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/. Anyone who experiences trouble signing up is encouraged to immediately file a report with my Office.”

As required by California law, consumers who were impacted by the Equifax breach are eligible for free credit monitoring. Equifax is also offering this service free of charge to consumers who were not impacted by the data breach. The free credit monitoring product is a one-year subscription that includes credit file monitoring and alerts that report any suspicious activity on your credit report at all three credit bureaus. It also includes Social Security number monitoring, identity theft insurance, a copy of your Equifax credit report, and a free service to lock your credit report at Equifax.

Consumers are also encouraged to take the following steps to protect their personal information:

1. Consider placing a “freeze” on your credit file.


A security freeze prevents your information from being shared with potential creditors and is the strongest form of protection. A freeze costs a one-time fee of $10 (but may cost additional fees to lift or renew). You need to request a security freeze from each of the three reporting agencies. Equifax has waived the $10 fee, but the other two companies, TransUnion and Experian, have not. The Attorney General’s Office does not have the authority to require the companies to waive their fees.

Experian’s credit freeze: https://www.experian.com/freeze/center.html

TransUnion’s credit freeze: https://freeze.transunion.com/sf/securityFreeze/landingPage.jsp

Equifax’s credit freeze: https://www.freeze.equifax.com/Freeze/jsp/SFF_PersonalIDInfo.jsp

2. Put a fraud alert on your credit file.

A fraud alert helps protect you against the possibility of someone opening new credit accounts in your name. A fraud alert lasts 90 days and can be renewed.

To post a fraud alert on your credit file, you must contact one of the three major credit reporting agencies below. If you contact any one of the three major credit reporting agencies, fraud alerts will be automatically added by the other two agencies as well.

Experian 1-888-397-3742
experian.com/fraud/center.html

TransUnion 1-800-680-7289
transunion.com/fraud

Equifax 1-888-766-0008
alerts.equifax.com

3. Review your credit reports. Look through each one carefully.

Check your credit reports from Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax — for free — by visiting annualcreditreport.com. Accounts or activity that you don’t recognize could indicate identity theft, especially accounts opened recently.

4. If you find items you don’t understand on your report, call the credit bureau at the number on the report.

Credit bureau staff will review your report with you. If the information can’t be explained, then you will need to call the creditors involved and report the crime to your local police or sheriff’s office. See the Identity Theft Victim Checklist: www.oag.ca.gov/idtheft/information-sheets.

      Yes Hillary is, yet Democrats have seem to forget her lies she told
      everyone while campaigning. She knows the stupidity of the American
      voters and how gullible they are.

    To HaHaHa,
    You really need to do the residents of the Mother Lode a big favor. Turn off your computer, grab your coat and take a nice walk. Then maybe you will cease with these unimaginative posts.

Equifax sent out an email signed by the CEO or President apologizing and giving a link for users to ask to be contacted. We did and they never have. Not impressed. Pursue credit freezes yourself.

    Why is this company trusted with collecting and storing our data against our will when they have proven to be incapable of taking the simplest measures to protect it?

    Best politicians money can buy.

      Equifax Still A Fed Contractor
      Posted on: 2018-01-29 15:56:46   By: Anonymous
       
      Unbelievable that the government still uses Equifax.
      You should freeze all credits reports from the 3 credit reporting agencies.
      Credit reports and alerts are BS.
      If you want to allow a business to get a credit repport the agency they use with your assistance will unfreeze your report for the business only.
      The State should force Equifax to wave fees to unlock your credit report to any approved businesses. Some credit reporting companies do not even charge to unlock your credit report. Equifax does. It has been a bad actor which had a security breach about 2 years before, They did nothing after the security breach in which some customers personal information stolen.


      Always keep your credit reports frozen. A Credit Report Alert Is Useless, It is After The Fact. Contact The Credit Report Agencies, Freeze Your Reports. All 3:
      Equiax
      Trans Union
      Experian

      In the picture, snapped in the darkness of a Wilton vineyard, Jack Kautz crouches behind a dead buck, smiling broadly as he holds up the animal’s head by its freakishly large set of antlers.

      It was a buck for the record books – with sprawling antlers about an arm’s width apart. If Kautz, 52, had been able to claim it as an official trophy, he could have added it to his long list of accomplishments detailed on the website of his family’s Lodi grape growing business, Ironstone Vineyards.
