Attorney General Demand Equifax Strengthen Customer Protections

Attorney General Andy Beshear has joined with 33 attorneys general to send a letter demanding Equifax take immediate steps to strengthen customer protections and improve services to the nearly 143 million people impacted by their recent data breach. Beshear said victims of a data breach should never have to pay to freeze their credit, nor should they have to face inadvertently signing up for a costly program instead of a free service. In the letter, Beshear demands Equifax stop using the data breach as an opportunity  to sell services to victims, specifically requesting disabling fee-based credit monitoring services and reimburse customers for any fees they have paid to other credit reporting agencies for a credit freeze.
