Brian Krebs has written an important and timely article reminding anyone — and everyone — impacted by the Equifax breach to check their credit report ASAP. In his article, Mr. Krebs cites a recently done consumer survey that found that many Americans haven’t yet done so although their personal and financial information was among that hacked by the Equifax breach.

Here’s the summary blurb from, and the link to, Mr. Krebs article:

A recent consumer survey suggests that half of all Americans still haven’t
checked their credit report since the Equifax breach last year exposed the
Social Security numbers, dates of birth, addresses and other personal
information on nearly 150 million people. If you’re in that fifty percent,
please make an effort to remedy that soon.

Credit reports from the three major bureaus — Equifax, Experian and Trans
Union — can be obtained online for free at — the only
Web site mandated by Congress to serve each American a free credit report
every year.

Please follow his great guidance and check your credit reports to see what, if any, malicious and illegal financial schemes might have been done using your personal and financial information.
