The #Equifax Data Breach.
Over 140 MILLION persons living in the United States had Equifax loose all their private financial data, including addresses and social security numbers and financial account information.

Go to the FTC's guide on how to find out if your credit report information was lost by Equifax and what steps you can do to protect yourself. Here is the link, just click:
