Equifax selling salary info

I hope this is the right place to put this.    This popped up on my news feed this morning.

I actually made more than a few posts concerning the CRAs including FICO "selling" data to all parties, with no loyalty to any - its posted on their web sites in the "'business section"' but you have to search for it.

Equifax seems to have taken it to a new level - I expect you'll see blow back on this from regulators.

Re: Equifax selling salary info

I don't know how detailed it is yet: I went looking for my prior employers when trying to access my report and none of them were in there. 

 

Either their search function is broken badly, or a non-trivial number of employers aren't using the service.

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
