Equifax $700 Million Settlement: get your piece

Are you eligible for a piece of the $700 Million settlement?

https://www.equifaxbreachsettlement.com/

Quote:
In September of 2017, Equifax announced it experienced a data breach, which impacted the personal information of approximately 147 million people. A federal court is considering a proposed class action settlement submitted on July 22, 2019, that, if approved by the Court, would resolve lawsuits brought by consumers after the data breach. Equifax denies any wrongdoing, and no judgment or finding of wrongdoing has been made.

When the website is updated, you will be able to see if you are a class member and, if so, to file a claim for the benefits listed below. Please note that none of these benefits will be distributed or available until the settlement is finally approved by the Court.

1. Free Credit Monitoring or $125 Cash Payment. You can get free credit monitoring services. Or, if you already have credit monitoring services, you can request a $125 cash payment.

At least 4 years of three-bureau credit monitoring, offered through Experian. You can also get up to 6 more years of free one-bureau credit monitoring through Equifax.
If you already have credit monitoring services that will continue for at least 6 more months, you may be eligible for a cash payment of $125.

2. Other Cash Payments. You may also be eligible for the following cash payments up to $20,000 for:

the time you spent remedying fraud, identity theft, or other misuse of your personal information caused by the data breach, or purchasing credit monitoring or freezing credit reports, up to 20 total hours at $25 per hour.
out-of-pocket losses resulting from the data breach.
up to 25% of the cost of Equifax credit or identity monitoring products you paid for in the year before the data breach announcement.

3. Free Identity Restoration Services: You are eligible for at least 7 years of free assisted identity restoration services to help you remedy the effects of identity theft and fraud.

Please check back in the coming days for more information, to find out whether you may be eligible for relief, and to file a claim.


You can also call (toll-free) 1-833-759-2982 for more information.

This could be a nice financial recovery for anyone that has been impacted by the data breach.

I dont know why I use turbotax credit monitoring but Im glad it will net me free weed money of 125$

SO are we all as in ALL eligable for 125$ or free credit monitoring? I doubt any of us had anything malicious happen to us becasue of the hack

DO I get all my family members on some wack credit monitoring program to get free money like I got them free redbulls in the mail (do you remember that!!!!?)

What happens if you don't claim your $125 Equifax money? You lose it -- and your chance to sue in the future

Don't forget, only $31M was set aside for the cash payouts, so it's very unlikely you'll get anywhere near the $125 based on the number of hits the site has already received.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/ftc-w...205308527.html

Quote:
Personal finance website NerdWallet estimated there would need to be no more than 248,000 approved claims out of the 147 million consumers affected - or less than one-fifth of 1% - for approved applicants to get the full $125.

LAME


That Credit Bureau should be sunk. They ruin more lives than most anything I can think of.

I demand $30,000 for each person who is on file with Equifax, then Equifax be shut down, and all the remainder of all credit-related debt goes to Equifax. Once that's settled, all credit stuff should just fuck right off and we go back to the good old days of cash.

Better to take the free monitoring in light of the fact that you likely won't even see the 125?
