Consumerist: 4 Things To Remember To Avoid Getting Scammed In Wake Of Equifax Breach

As everyone now knows, 143 million Americans had their personal data compromised during a two-month-long data breach at credit reporting agency Equifax earlier this year. Authorities are now reminding consumers to watch out for bad actors looking to profit from everyone’s worries about their newfound vulnerability.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman on Monday warned consumers to be vigilant against possible hacking and phishing attempts following the massive Equifax data breach.

Phishing is a type of online scam that targets consumers by sending them an email or placing a phone call that appears to be from a well-known source – in this case, Equifax or your bank. The scammers ask for personal identifying information and then use the information to open new accounts, or invade the your existing accounts.
