Getting your identity stolen is never fun but what happens when one of the world's biggest credit reporting companies gets breached and it's main function is to protect your valuable information.

Equifax got breached in 2017 and now they have settled with the Federal Government and that means a cash settlement could be owed you.

I filed my claimed and discovered that I was breached and so I opted for the four-year free credit monitoring but you can opt for a cash refund of $125.
