Equifax has verified that phishing attempts have been made on some customers using our online delivery systems. "Phishing" or "spoofing" is an e-mail threat where fraudulent e-mails appear from a well-known company and ask you to provide, update or confirm certain confidential information.
In this instance, some Equifax customers have reported receiving e-mails appearing to be from Equifax requesting that they provide confidential information such as User ID and Password. Equifax would never send an email asking for this information. These e-mails have not been sent from Equifax and are not legitimate. PLEASE DELETE THE MESSAGES IMMEDIATELY AND DO NOT RESPOND TO THEM. Simply clicking the link in a spoofed e-mail can be dangerous, even if you do not provide the information requested.
