I just completed putting a credit freeze on all four (yes, I include Innovis) national agencies in response to the Equifax breach. So why do we consumers have to pay to have our personal information protected when we don't consent to the credit agency's use nor have any control? In PA we have to pay $10 each to the three major agencies to have a credit freeze instituted. (Equifax has temporarily rescinded the fee because the latest massive breach was theirs).

And why are the credit reporting agencies not held to the highest standards? They ought to be held financially liable for the damage caused by the misuse of their data by identity thieves. That includes reimbursement for financial loss for rejection of applications, reimbursement for erroneous billing and compensation for consumer's time and aggravation in straightening out the messes.

For that matter, given that the credit reporting agencies are for-profit organizations (and make quite a lot of profit) where is the consumer's cut?

I do not appreciate Equifax's cavalier attitude displayed in their slipshod handling of the current breach which affects Republicans and Democrats alike. I ask you and our other legislators to step up and enact legislation with teeth to protect consumers.
