    TLDR: months ago some hackers got through and got information from 143 million Americans. CEO then sold their shares after the company noticed it was breached and didn't tell the public until now.

    UPDATE

    After compromising the financial information of half the American population, Equifax have just spent the last 2 weeks directing people to a fake Equifax website that was built to phish their customers details

    I took the free protection. Don't even need it, already watch my accounts like a hawk, but the lockout button is worth about $30 and that's 6x more than what a class action would pay out.

    Yeah they tried to sneak a clause in there that made it so if you sign up for their credit monitoring you waived your right to sue them. Consumer Reports or someone called them out so they removed it. Fucking ratfucks

    I just want to see them bankrupted, really
