Dear fellow MoveOn member,
Credit-reporting giant Equifax has just disclosed that, in the summer of 2017, hackers gained access to the personal information of 143 million of its consumers. The hackers obtained names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, addresses, and, in some cases, even credit card information.1
Equifax's response to this cyberattack is appalling. The company is only offering a free, one-year credit-monitoring service and then it gets to profit from its despicable behavior by offering the service for a fee.2
Equifax needs to be held accountable for their actions; that's why the company needs to provide an unlimited, free credit-monitoring service to all those who are impacted by the recent security breach.
