FTC says to not expect that $125 from the Equifax settlement. Only $31m was set aside so, the more asking for a piece the smaller the size. What did they expect? The credit monitoring thing is just a way for Equifax to profit off the event, so that shouldn’t be an option. Besides, with so many breaches already taking place I already have several forms of monitoring in place.
Perhaps the fine should have been larger… you know, a real penalty.
Oh, and dear FTC… let’s do something real like replacing Social Security Numbers with something more secure.
