Equifax Breach!!  Who would have believed it!

My personal credit information has been compromised.  My wife’s personal credit information has been compromised.  All along with 143 million other people!!  We did not sign up for the “free” credit monitoring service from Equifax!!  It had nothing to do with the potential to waive your right to sue them.  It was just an oxymoron to have the folks that were “hacked” provide monitoring services for us and then charge me after 12 months!!  Fortunately Susan and I have credit monitoring and ID Protect through the Secure Checking program.  This monitoring service even includes monitoring the “dark web” where cyber criminals troll to buy this type of information.

These criminals now have access to our credit file including drivers license number, social security number, date of birth, every resident address on file, and more.  This is enough information to buy a car in my name!!  Plus, it may take 3 to 5 years or longer for these cyber crooks to use my information!  It’s not a matter of if…but when they will use it.  Credit Unions that offer our Secure Checking program to their members have been “proactive”!  Not “reactive”!!  They did not wait for a breach of this magnitude to occur.  They wanted their member-owners to have credit monitoring services, Identity theft protection and identity theft restoration in the event a member becomes a victim.  Kudos to those credit unions who have the vision to address this serious crime before it happens… not after!

Learning more about this valuable program is simple… just register for a no obligation demo today!  You will be glad you did!!
