If you have already decided to participate in the settlement and chose to receive a check for $125 instead of free credit monitoring, a new action is required to receive your check.
IF YOU FAIL TO COMPLETE THIS TASK
YOU WILL RECEIVE NOTHING AT ALL!
Equifax did not anticipate so many people to choose the cash option for victims of their data breach. They are now trying to weasel out of paying you in a very sneaky way. This came in the form of an additional step in an email sent out to claimants on September 7th 2019.
If you check your inbox you should find an email from the company stating that you must re-confirm that you want a check/prepaid card for $125 instead of free credit monitoring. They also want you to re-enter the credit monitoring company you will have instead of using their service that you submitted on the form. They give a deadline of October 15th 2019 to complete this new task.
Don’t let them screw you out of your money and complete this task now!
