It's been about a month since Equifax (NYSE: EFX) disclosed that as many as 143 million Americans could be impacted by a huge security breach of the data it receives from credit card companies, banks, retailers and lenders. In its news release, Equifax disclosed that the stolen information — which it discovered on July 29 — primarily included names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver's license numbers. Maine's Bureau of Consumer Credit Protection is advising Mainers to temporarily freeze their credit report information to prevent unauthorized persons from opening credit accounts in their name.
Have you acted on that recommendation and taken the step of freezing your credit report information with Equifax and the two other major credit reporting agencies, Experian and Trans Union?
