Attorney General: 1.1 million Iowans hit by Equifax breach

Step 2 in Equifax's Unfreeze Process

In a press release Thursday, Colorado's Attorney General Cynthia Coffman advises consumers in the state to carefully protect their personal information after Equifax's announcement of a large data breach.

It is very important that you take these steps right away because, as I said above, you already could be a victim of ID theft. It seems that each day now we're learning more about the hack of Equifax and the subsequent breach of the personal data of over 143 million American adults.

The Equifax breach has generated intense scrutiny of the company and could spark more regulations to protect Americans' personal data, the White House said Monday. And if you have credit, Equifax has your sensitive information. So, if you contact them to see if your information was breached you may or may not be getting the most accurate information.

The company has promised free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services for one year.

We're getting reports that Equifax's security freeze website isn't able to process freezes during this time when so many Americans are anxious about identity theft.

Jennifer Lawrence relied on the Kardashians during movie shoot

"See if you have any charges on your credit card or anything like that, you can put a freeze on your account or you could put a fraud alert on your account and that lasts for 90 days", said Cheryl Parson, President of the BBB Lima Office. They also should monitor their credit and debit card accounts for unauthorized transactions. Consumers can also implement a credit freeze that prevents would-be scammers from opening new accounts using the victim's identity. Click on the "Potential Impact" tab and enter your last name and the last six digits of your Social Security number.

Experts said Equifax will likely pay to freeze your credit at their agency, but that isn't where you should stop. Initially the company's credit monitoring did have a cost.

However, Team Clark is hearing from people who've had a lot of trouble placing a credit freeze through Equifax's website. This is going to last way longer than that, so your next step is you add a free fraud alert to any of the big major companies.

The Canadian Press made multiple calls as consumers to Equifax Canada's customer service line and was told that consumers whose credit files were not checked outside of Canada are unlikely to be part of any breach. Note that under federal law, you are entitled to one free credit report each year from each of the three major credit reporting agencies.
