You've seen the headlines for days. You know your identity could be at risk with the Equifax breach. Cyber criminals stole names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses and driver's license numbers.
Hackers also gained more than two-hundred thousand credit card numbers. Crooks can take that info a try to get a credit card, cell phone, loan and file a false tax return.
Be your own advocate. Freeze your credit. In order to freeze your credit, you'll have to go to each of the three credit bureaus ... Experian,TransUnion and Equifax to submit a freeze request. For ID theft victims, sometimes freezing is free. Or it could cost up to thirty dollars.
