Re: Equifax - data breach - 143 million US consumers

Just called equifax and apparently there is a second email to wait for after the wait for the first one. I was told they would email me my login info in the second email.

[ Edited ]

They gave me a 9/11 date to enroll, and I go the email on 9/11. I got in early, they're likely more & more back logged now.

 

The email to look for has this subject line: Update on your TrustedID Premier Product

 

And in the body of the email it has this:

 

To verify your identity and activate your product, please click the link below:

https://trustedidpremier.com/consumer-registration/x/activate/?token=

(my specific token is left off for obvious reasons) 

 

I enrolled, but haven't used it, I have Equifax Complete Premier service and locked my EQ file on that end. So all TrustedID does is tell me my EQ is locked. It looked pretty basic, so I'm sticking with Complete Premier.

Re: Equifax - data breach - 143 million US consumers

I finally got the second email (which EQ told me was the normal procedure) and clicked and filled out what they wanted. I was then told "you're already signed up" and to sign in with my password (which I never was asked to set). I had to tell them I forgot it, then was able to get into the system once I "reset" my password and finally got this message. The cluster @#$% continues 9 days in....

Wow, please don't take this the wrong way, but you guys are making me glad that I decided to wait on signing up. Talk about a lot of wasted time and energy.
