Re: Capital One Data Breach

They get all of our information but on the bright side:

""Importantly, no credit card account numbers or log-in credentials were compromised and over 99 percent of Social Security numbers were not compromised," according to Capital One. "

How the heck is the charge for this so low? 5 years and $250K is a slap on the wrist! You pull something like this, it should be 20-life. It’s the only way they will ever discourage these breaches.

Re: Capital One Data Breach

Yeah at first they said all your data was compromised then they say oh your SS# is safe. The women who hacked the firewall did not do anything with the data. Yeah ok I believe that.

Re: Capital One Data Breach

My first thought was (as usual after a big breach) "this is why you should freeze your credit files"   But then it struck me with EQ being hacked as well, it's probably only a few extra steps for a hacker to unfreeze a report and app anyway,.

And they all sit there and laugh. Equifax will pay 17% of one years profit for their epic breech, they are laughing as well, so will Cap-1 after the lawsuits, the people will get nearly zilch. Sick of it all.
