Equifax (one of the top 3 credit reporting companies) has announced a cybersecurity incident involving consumer information. According to information on MSNBC and other sources we have seen, Equifax will send paper mail to consumers whose credit card numbers or dispute documents with personally identifying information were impacted. It has also created a dedicated website for consumers to see if they were affected at www.equifaxsecurity2017.com. You can also call the Equifax call center at 866-447-7559.
