Internet bad guys are now trying to trick you into filing an Equifax claim and get a $125 payment because your personal data was in the Equifax data breach. They are sending phishing attacks that look like they come from Equifax and when you click on the links, you wind up on a fake website that looks like it’s Equifax, but will try to steal your personal information. Don’t fall for it.
if you want to file a claim, go the legit FTC website and click on the blue “File a Claim” button. The website will check your eligibility for that claim because not everyone’s information was compromised. Here is the link to the FTC site: https://www.ftc.gov/enforcement/cases-proceedings/refunds/equifax-data-breach-settlement
