Shame On Equifax

masked hackers 

I'm one of the millions probably everyone who has credit in the United States and Canada who Equifax gave my personal information to the Russian mob, crazy terrorists and North Korean hackers. Equifax offers a crummy credit monitoring service in exchange for this damage. Don't be stupid enough to go through the same website Equifax allowed bad guys to enter! Big E's credit monitoring is a joke. Big E does NOTHING to protect consumers. Bad guys can open credit in my good name even after I die thanks to Equifax. Right now Big E is in meetings coming up with a spin on how they SHARED your private life information with every bad guy.

This is the most serious credit breach ever disclosed. Equifax gave enough information for anyone to open credit, buy a house, buy a car, get into your bank accounts from now until the end of time.

I want to opt out of Equifax because they are sloppy, careless and continue stupid mistakes, but this is impossible because they hold us all hostage. But sorry, you can't opt out of Equifax.
The hacker got into Equifax's main frame information bank by downloading a person's credit report, then found a way to see what the Big E says is 134 million accounts. Assume Equifax lies, it's a billion records they hacked.

What makes me mad is Equifax kept this secret for months. Not until an employee whistle blower let it be leaked does Equifax come out and admit they gave my social security number, date of birth, driver's license number, home address, home phone and email to evil doers. Notice they let the leak out when everyone is watching news about the hurricanes, a marketing cover ploy. 

Short EFX stock

Here's what the CEO Rick Smith says:

 Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) today announced a cyber security incident potentially impacting approximately 143 million U.S. consumers. Criminals exploited a U.S. website application vulnerability to gain access to certain files. Based on the company’s investigation, the unauthorized access occurred from May through July 2017. Cough cough the big E (one of the three American credit cops) have known about this for two months. 
The information accessed includes names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, driver’s license numbers. In addition, credit card numbers for approximately 209,000 U.S. consumers, and certain dispute documents with personal identifying information for approximately 182,000 U.S. consumers, were accessed. As part of its investigation of this application vulnerability, 

BIG E you are despicable.

Rick SMITH CEO you are fired. 

Here's the hacker's ransom request:
"Equifax executives sold 3 million dollars in shares taking advantage of their insider information after the attack," notes the hacker's website. "We believe that 600 BTC is a fair amount ransom."

The hackers ransom my (and probably your) information for $2,600,000 today. They say they will post all our information if not paid by the 15th of September.
Once personal information floats out there - anyone can buy a house, a car, get a credit card in my good name and I will be stuck fighting this until I die.
Updates on my request to force Equifax to erase my file and success with 2 banks agreed to stop selling my monthly tapes of credit information here:
Dear Hackers 
If I may address you. Please don't post my personal information, Go ahead and put up everything you know about RICK SMITH.  He sold stock options BEFORE this scandal was public as well as other key and highly paid employees. Report them to the SEC and CFBP for fraud, insider trading, and lack of fiduciary duty. Orange jump suits for Equifax employees.

If you are an Equifax employee who sold any EFX stock between May 2nd and today, the SEC is going to find you.
I assume a great number of employees knew -even the marketing department was ramping up campaigns and spend un-tethered dollars to fight the impending doom. The Big E was running ads on internet, television and radio in incredible volume in July and August to hide this scandal. Big E spend ten times their normal marketing advertising budget in July and August to cover up the mess.

Stock down to 99 today from high of 170 before the bad news
And now to relax your soul because you read this far:
