Equifax reported last week a leak on July 29 that compromised the data of 143 million Americans. This breach included Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some instances, driver license numbers. As though that weren’t bad enough, 209,000 people had their credit card info leaked, and the breach also included dispute documents with personally identifying information from 182,000 consumers.

Following the report, the company came under fire for its response, which was both lackadaisical and callous. The website that the company set up to assist consumers was at best broken and at worst, a scam. Phone calls to the company followed the same trend, and, since then, Congress is reportedly looking into the issue.
