FTC Warns About Equifax Scams


(WBRE/WYOU-TV)   The Federal Trade Commission has a warning about scams related to Equifax’s data breach.

       The FTC issued a tweet on Monday urging caution about fake websites claiming to be the Equifax settlement claims website.

      This comes after Equifax agreed to pay consumers up to $125 in cash and identity security services because of its 2017 data breach that impacted about 150 million people.  

        The F-T-C urges consumers to only apply for claims through the link on their website or the official settlement website.
