Re: Equifax will reportedly pay $700 million in fines due to the 2017 security breach

I signed the settlement for the $125 payout. Expecting to get maybe $1 if I'm lucky. Terrible how the cash option is capped out at $30 million for everyone.

From the FTC, July 31: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2019/07/equifax-data-breach-pick-free-credit-monitoring

 

"For those who have already submitted claims for this cash payment, look for an email from the settlement administrator. They’ll be asking you for the name of the credit monitoring service you already have. Or, if you want to change your mind, you’ll have a chance to switch to the free credit monitoring."


I'm going to switch to the free credit monitoring, because getting that 78 cent check is gonna make me mad when it shows up next year.

27 FICO Scores + 3 VS3. MTG (Mortgage), AUT (Auto), and BKC (Bankcard) are scores 5,4, and 2 from the top.
