So, Richard Smith, the now ex-CEO of Equifax had to answer some questions. He got questioned by a few different committees. Here’s what we know……….

Yes, equifax did get hacked back in May or June of this year.

Yes, it was over 143,000,000 people’s information.

Yes, they claim that they did not know about these hacks until July.

Yes, they waited until September to release the information that they had been hacked.

Yes, they did offer FREE Credit Monitoring through Trusted ID for 1 year.

Yes, Equifax owns Trusted ID.

Yes, after your FREE year at Trusted ID, it goes up to 17.00 a month.

Yes, Richard (A.K.A. DICK) Smith was quoted from a speech given in August( after being hacked, but before telling anyone) as saying that the best thing that could happen for Equifax is if they would be hacked, so that they could sell their credit monitoring service.

Yes, unbelievably, the IRS just gave Equifax a huge no-bid contract to verify Identities in the upcoming tax season.

You can not make this stuff up people. Things are only going to get crazier from here. These identities will start being used soon. Some in ways that are not going to be detectable by the run of the mill credit monitoring services. Criminal Identity theft, synthetic ID theft, immigration identity theft, tax fraud. These can only be detected by an Identity Monitoring service. Between this breach, the data breach at the VA, Yahoo, hospitals, insurance companies, your mail, hacked websites, etc. etc. It is almostĀ  certain that if you are an adult, your identity will be stolen in the next 5 years.

I personally use LifeLock. I have a relationship with LifeLock. I believe that LifeLock is a necessity. Join now by clicking the banner below. You deserve peace of mind about this. Look, I know that nobody can prevent all Identity Theft. But LifeLock will detect it faster, they will notify you, they will help you fix it.
