New class action suit says Equifax let criminals steal your personal information

Orlando-based Morgan & Morgan and ClassAction.com have filed a federal class action lawsuit against Equifax, one of the nation's three largest credit reporting agencies, for the data breach that potentially compromised 143 million consumer records.

Equifax revealed Thursday that unauthorized users accessed the names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases driver's license numbers of consumers from mid-May through July. Equifax also admitted that credit card numbers for about 209,000 U.S. consumers were accessed.

The suit, filed in Georgia, accuses Equifax of failing to properly secure and safeguard consumers' personally identifiable information, which resulted in criminals obtaining their personal and financial information.
