As you may have heard or seen on the news in the past couple of days, Equifax, one of the three major consumer credit reporting agencies, announced that hackers had breached its computer systems and stole sensitive financial and personal information about 143 million American consumers. That information includes Social Security numbers and driver’s license numbers, as well as, most likely, credit card and bank account information.
Please note, however, that if your personal information was stolen, Equifax immediately invites you to register for one year of a credit protection service. If you register for that service, however, you will be required to waive your right to participate in a class action lawsuit, or to prosecute your claim in court in any manner. You need to be aware of this.
If you were affected, we’d like to help you. DiCello Levitt is presently investigating this developing situation and intends to file a class action lawsuit against Equifax for damages caused by this data breach. DiCello Levitt attorneys have deep experience in the data breach and electronic privacy field, filed the very first such cases starting in 1999, and have been recognized by judges as “pioneers’ in this field. Let us help you here.
