    I’m Not sure if this applies to me, but Equifax does have those records on me,, plus they’ve added my late husbands ex-wife’s records attached to mine, I called them,, their response ,,, it’s because your husband is deceased and he had unpaid bills when he was married to his ex wife,, so we added his previous wife to yours,, it’s our way of getting someone to pay,,,,,, I said to them, are you serious,, you attached my husbands old records to not only to mine, but put his ex-wife’s on my record as well? they said they had the right to do that,”,,, They need to be stopped ,, they helped to destroy my score,,, . I am praying someone will stop this company,,, thank you!

  41. Loretta Epps says:

    I think that Equifax should be liable for paying consumers something for messing up and causing or making it possible for hackers to get people personal information and Identity. This cause innocent people to lose everything they have to a person that don’t work just sit at computers looking for a way to steal a person hard earning

    ADMIN – Hi Loretta,

    You are right. Hopefully justice will prevail.

Equifax breach of contract reporting my Bankruptcy cases in year 2015 and 2016 is still reporting the same information the way it did before. I lost my home because of the Breach of Equifax, My credit is below 600 score and I cannot get loans or credit anywhere. Banks, loan company are saying you have Bankruptcy.I tried talking to Equifax to take out the information,because you have not changed the way you are reporting my information. They had a final hearing and i guess they forgot to notify me are send final results. I have information in the credit Bureau over ten years,I did investigation after investigation until today, However the credit Bureau is reporting verified as accurate over ten years and refuse the way it report my information on me. I have been in fraud over ten years something need to be done about Equifax .
