There was an email, seemingly from Amazon in my inbox this morning. It claimed to be a survey. Seemed suspicious since it has been a while since I purchased anything on Amazon. So I checked online and sure enough there is an Amazon survey email scam. Looks like a pretty nasty one too, from what I have read about it.

On a side note here. Has anyone noticed an uptick of crap in there inbox since that credit bureau got hacked?

Not more then the usual stuff.
If you all haven't done it yet, Equifax free credit monitoring.

I got this notice in my USPS mailbox from one of my creditors. Legit.

If you use Equifax's monitoring you won't be allowed to sue them for their data breach or participate in any type of law suit in the future.

I got this notice from my AT&T.
These was no disclosure that would keep me from doing so in the future.
As far as I could see. Now a days, who knows. Strange bedfellows?
I see it this way, why live the nightmare if it happens to me. Is it reaaly worth all the stress, frozen accounts, no money. We've all heard some kind of horror story. I don't want to be another statistic.
Worst case scenario could also be the norm. With this FREE monitoring, I get notified instantly. It has already worked for me since I signed up last week! US Dept. of Education when I went to Berkeley College with my son and did our yearly financing for his schooling. Senior year.
