    I am going to remember that phrase “torts cooking in ovens” for future use. I will not credit you, bae, but your words will live on, and that should be reward enough! Haha.

    I do like a good turn of phrase.

    One woman took a decidedly different approach. She sued equifax in small claims court and got a $600 decision in her favor. Imagine if even just a few thousand people took that approach e havoc it would cause equifax from a defense standpoint.

    So are folks going for the cash compensation or the 10 years of credit monitoring?

    So sorry! I made a mistake. Went and looked at check stub and it was from some other settlement, having to do with a student loan and a bank that handled it.

    Went for the cash. I already have credit monitoring and the less I have to do with EquiLax the better I will feel.

    I'm going for the cash. Since I froze all three credit bureaus there's nothing to monitor.

    And the freeze actually works. I tried to sign up for a Southwest Airlines affiliated card because they were offering a stupid amount of miles and I got a letter a few days later informing me that they couldn't offer me a card because they were unable to access my credit report. I could have unfroze it, had them retry, and then refroze it, but I decided I didn't really need the card or the miles so I just let it go.
