Equifax Breach...........think it doesn't effect you?
Imagine you are on a beautiful vacation
enjoying your time with family.
It is easy to do with this picture.
Then you decide to check your bank account,
only to realize there has been an ACH withdrawal 3 times within the past week for a credit card payment.
That is what happened to my husband and I recently.
The payments were an odd amount,
not the amount you would normally send,
unless you were paying the card off each month.
Amounts like $408.95, 403.95, or something similar.
After reviewing our account,
3 ACH payments had been withdrawn.
The scammer had gotten access to the account,
set up their email to where we were unable to log in,
and had been charging and making payments.
Luckily we caught it before too much damage was done. However, others may not be as lucky.
The best advice I can give you is Heed the Warnings. Regardless of whether you believe
your accounts have been breached,
Take Action Now!!
Call your credit card companies.
Have them change account numbers for you
and reissue a new card.
Change your passwords on all your accounts.
You do not want to be like us
and find out XXX amount of dollars
was taken out of your bank account
for purchases you did not make.
