i saw an article that the NY attorney general is pursuing them to remove that clause. pretty poor business practice, IMO. they'll more than likely get hit with hefty fines for the failure (since the gov't has super strict regulatory compliance requirements for personal info) and i wonder if they'll be forced to make reparations to clients and/or remove the clause. i'm trying to remember which financial institution had a similar breach not super long ago, and one of the things they did as a result was offer free credit monitoring. hopefully they didn't go through equifax..

The mindset has to be resilience, not prevention. Just watch your bank and credit card statements carefully, and pull your free annual report from each agency (Equifax, Transunion, Experian) - e.g. every 4 months from one of them - and report any suspicious activity. Credit scores require payment, but the report of which lines you have open (or had open and were closed) is free.

According to the website they have up for this, the arbitration clause does not apply.

And as for credit scores not being free...
I get free scores from Credit Karma (although the accuracy of those is arguable) as well as from my credit card provider, Discover.
