The Office of Information Technologies advises that half of Americans were victims of the September 2017 Equifax data breach. The Federal Trade Commission recently reached a financial settlement with Equifax and, as a result, many people are eligible for benefits.
More information about the settlement is available on this FTC Consumer Information webpage.
