This can’t be good: Equifax or Equiphish?

I just read this article entitled Equifax or Equiphish? and I’m personally not convinced that a freeze is the answer to all of these issues with Equafax and its continuing issues on letting us know about their breach. The more I read about what they’re doing, the more I don’t want any of what they’re offering.

  • Charging consumers to put a freeze on their file because they didn’t update their software
  • Having everyone sign up for credit monitoring which is fine, but then saying you’re not effected
  • When the breach first occurred, telling people to come back at a certain date but the site doesn’t work
  • Having Experian which I understand they control being part of the data breach problem as they had their own issues

When I first got the letter from the OPM breach, and entered my information that I was given, I talked to an agent. The agent was very nice, and explained who they were, as I had no idea. I know that fingerprints are needed as part of getting a job in some cases, but we do not have any idea on who is offering the service for the company. I’m really wondering if we’re losing control of our information. There will be no way for us to have control of it come the next 5 to 10 years.

Have thoughts? Please feel free to sound off in the comments, and let us know how you have credit checked if you apply for a credit card or loan. This can’t be good.
