Equifax Breach

What you should know

Equifax BreachAccording to the Federal Trade Commission “If you have a credit report, there’s a good chance that you’re one of the 143 million American consumers whose sensitive personal information was exposed in a data breach at Equifax, one of the nation’s three major credit reporting agencies.

Here are the facts, according to Equifax. The breach lasted from mid-May through July. The hackers accessed people’s names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver’s license numbers. They also stole credit card numbers for about 209,000 people and dispute documents with personal identifying information for about 182,000 people. And they grabbed personal information of people in the UK and Canada too.”

There are things that you can do to help protect your identity and your accounts. We have been posting on our blog about the breach, and some ways for you to protect yourself and your accounts. Look for articles here on the blog for more.  They are listed under the tag: breach.

Susan Soltesz

Someone we’re proud of

Our Susan has been growing her hair for years. Why? So that she could cut it and donate it to be made into a wig for people suffering from cancer or children suffering from alopecia.

By the way, it’s the second time she’s donated. Susan has donated to Locks of Love and to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, both organizations focused on helping victims of disease restore some normalcy to their lives.  We couldn’t be prouder.
