Case Name

In re: Equifax Inc. Customer Data Security Breach Litigation,
Case No.1:17-md-2800-TWT

United States District Court,
Northern District of Georgia

Case Summary

In September of 2017, Equifax disclosed that its systems had been breached by a criminal cyberattack. This attack gave the cybercriminals unlawful access to the personal information of around 147 million U.S. consumers, including people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and in some cases, the driver’s license numbers, credit card numbers, and/or other personal information. Plaintiffs claim that Equifax did not sufficiently protect such personal information and that Equifax delayed in disclosing the data breach.

    Where do I begin on this one? First of all, the data that was stolen has yet to show up on the darkweb. Secondly, there is no evidence that anyone has been a victim due to the data breach. The latest intelligence suggest the data was stolen by some party in China under the employ of the Chinese military.

    Only 31 million was set aside for the cash in leu of monitoring. A significant portion of the 147 million alleged victims requested cash in lieu of monitoring, so you can forget the (was it $125). Last I read the estimated pay out will be only $19 per claimant. The deadline for said claims has passed.

    If you are seeking an extended claim, well, you better have some documentation to show or you are out of luck. Do not even try to claim you spent 100 hours, and $2,000 trying to fix the theft of your identity. That goes double for those of you that put your name, birthdate, and everything up on facebook (you know the theft of your identity was your own fault).

      The info stolen from Equifax has not shown up anywhere. The “hack” (as you put it) against your info was more likely the result of phishing or someone taking advantage of whatever you posted on facebook. I strongly suggest you minimize your exposure, before just assuming Equifax had anything to do with it.
