Just wanted to make you all aware of the big data breach of Equifax that was announced on the news yesterday. 143 million people’s information was stolen from their website including names, birthdates, social security numbers and possibly some driver’s license number and credit card numbers. We are suggesting you at least go to this website to check to see if your data was impacted:

The latest reports say you should check, even if you haven’t visited their site, as any company you have applied to for credit or a loan will have checked your credit on their site and that info would have been posted to your consumer page just in case you ever wanted to check your credit report. They are offering FREE one year identity theft and credit monitoring to let you know if anyone were to try to use your data. Just follow the instructions on the website to see if you are affected.
