Good luck getting it. Heard you have to really prove it to get it. Maybe since you are not asking for the full 20k they will just do it

we might not get the full $125




say whaaat - a giant corporation screwing people out of what they're due...................𝑺𝑼𝑹𝑷𝑹𝑰𝑺𝑬...........𝑺𝑼𝑹𝑷𝑹𝑰𝑺𝑬...............𝑺𝑼𝑹𝑷𝑹𝑰𝑺𝑬


from the article:


"Second, even if you file for reimbursement, thereís a good chance you wonít actually get the full $125 that Equifax and the FTC are talking about. Things are worded carefully in the agreement, but the bottom line is thereís a limited amount of money in the payout pool, and it wonít cover $125 checks for 147 million people."

thanks Rigondeaux - very nice of you to share this with everybody







I don't really blame Equifax too much - similar stuff has happened to so many companies
I don't believe any of them have a realistic chance to shut out the hackers completely
the hackers are very smart and very dedicated and willing to put in thousands of hours on stuff like this
kind of like blaming a security guard if you get pickpocketed at a casino - he can't stop it from happening

Me, wife, ex-wife, two sons all checked. The females qualified. Not counting on the money for food or shelter, but will be disappointed, not stunned, if $125 doesn't come wife's way. Ex has agreed to give me 10% finders fee if she gets her $125!

I wonder how many people will take the credit reporting option instead of money? I expect it would be close to zero?

You and I view adjectives differently. This is the company who had our entire information profile protected by a woman with a Master in English or some s#$%, right? Whose password was "password"? Who allowed the leak of literally every single Americans personal info, to the point if you are in any way "on the grid" your info has been compromised?

Dunno about you, but I would not sell that stuff for a hundred bucks. And the $125mm this "fine" looks to total is about 5months of their earnings. It. Is. Not. Enough.

In Face's America, we're gonna do some means testing on civil penalties. What good is a $5b fine to Facebook if the infraction nets them $25b? If you made $1k a day selling crack, and I fined you $100 a day for being a civic menace, are you gonna stop selling crack? C'mon, man.

I'd bury them so deep its replacement's roots would never reach them. Take that fine money for reparations to the offended and to rehome the workforce, kick the CEO's out on their ass (or into jail, depending), and start the seeding of a forest of Good Faith. Getting pretty tired of the no-recourse shot taking in corporate America.

Coup in '22.

ETA: They got me. Thanks, Rigo.



Agree, except that it didnít affect literally every single American. Equifax isnít very active in the Northeast and Atlantic regions. The breach affected people primarily in the South and West, with some involvement in the Midwest. Not saying that no one in the Northeast was affected, but that most people not affected are in the Northeast and Atlantic.

About 7 or 8 years ago there was a settlement about lawnmowers where, (as I recall), the stated power rating was slightly lower than it actually was. I didn't really care about it, but $$ is $$. Driving mowers were supposed to get "up to" $75 with walk behinds getting "up to" $35.

It's still online: https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-settlements/closed-settlements/604-lawn-mower-class-action-lawsuit-settlement/

I don't remember the exact amount I got, (and couldn't find anything online), but as I recall I ended up with around half of what the initial amount was. And bear in mind I don't think that settlement had nearly the exposure that this one does.

My guess is that so many people are going to apply for this that the end result will be substantially less than $125.

I'm trying to decide if getting the credit monitoring might be the better option. At least that will have a fixed value, or at least I think it would.

Yeah, but I subscribe to the Geddy Lee school of economics.... "Ten bucks is ten bucks."
