By now many of you have heard of the Equifax security breach.  Millions of consumers are reported to be affected through potential exposure of their confidential information (name, address, email, driver’s license number, date of birth) and several thousands were affected to the degree that their account numbers and banking information may have been exposed.  The link below is reported to allow you to identify whether you were affected and to enroll in the free data protection Equifax is offering. 

We are unable to ascertain the accuracy of the check below nor the protocols and protections offered other than to relay this information.  It is up to you to ascertain what steps, if any, you feel are needed in your situation.  We advise that you do take this seriously however and that if impacted, you take precautions such as closing or changing accounts and / or obtaining identify theft protection.  Always use caution when entering information via the internet.  Be sure all information is provided through a secured website.  We hope you and your family are not directly impacted by this situation.
