Financial Tip of the Day
Did you do a credit freeze to protect yourself yet? Last year I did a credit freeze with all 3 bureaus after I found out about the Equifax data breach.
This piece tells you what you need to know to freeze your credit, "Credit freezes will be free, thanks to banking deregulation law and Equifax changes."
If you haven’t done so yet, set aside 20-30 minutes over the long holiday weekend to do this.
ESPECIALLY if your information was definitely hacked. Check here to see if your information is “out there” vulnerable: https://www.equifaxsecurity2017.com/
The longer you wait, the more your personal and financial data is at risk.
There is NO excuse for putting it off, because almost all of us WILL have the time to do it over the long weekend.
No, it’s not fun. But the FEW minutes you spend protecting your money and identity doesn’t compare to the long-term devastation that identity theft causes.
And you’ll still have plenty of time to enjoy yourself this weekend. Peace of mind is worth it to me. What about you?
