Watch Out for Equifax Phishing Scam
If your Equifax data was breached back in 2017, you might have learned that you have an opportunity to receive a small settlement from the company. Internet bad guys are trying to take advantage of the situation by sending fake emails that look like they’re from Equifax, and link you to a fake site that looks like Equifax. It’s a phishing scheme designed to get you to enter your personal information. Don’t fall for it.
If you would like to see if you are eligible for a settlement from Equifax, the Federal Trade Commission has set up a page specifically for the Equifax data breach. You can visit the FTC site at https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/cases-proceedings/refunds/equifax-data-breach-settlement
