Additional information about Equifax.

Also, Frank found that if you go to the website and sign up, you will lose your right to sue for damages in the future. I got an email from Consumers Union which cautioned about signing up. Please read before doing anything. I am also NOT recommending signing this petition - I never sign any petition online! I am just posting this to point out the fact that Equifax is not really your best friend in this matter. Do your research first!

> A massive data breach at Equifax compromised sensitive data for nearly half of all U.S. consumers — including names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and the numbers of some driver's licenses.
