Class Claims LLC ( — http://www.class.claims/)and Jonathan W. Johnson are pleased to announce that a class action case was filed on Friday, September 15, 2017, against Equifax. The suit was filed on behalf of the millions of persons who had their confidential information stolen in the recent data breach. 140 million Americans whose files are part of the Equifax database had confidential information stolen. This group of people represents most of the adults in the United States who have acquired credit through credit cards, mortgages or auto loans.
The firm is accepting clients on a contingency fee basis, If the attorneys are unable to recover anything, clients will not be required to pay any attorney fees. Sign up is easy and convenient. The entire sign-up process takes only about five minutes. Attorney Jonathan W. Johnson has been a practicing trial attorney responsible for hundreds of wrongful death cases around the United States since his graduation from law school in 1992.
For approximately ten weeks the hackers accessed names, Social Security numbers, birth dates, and addresses. The driver's license numbers were also stolen for some people. Over two hundred thousand people had their credit card numbers stolen. Dispute documents with personal identifying information for nearly 182,000 individuals were also taken by the criminal hackers. In many instances, the accessed information is adequate to take over the identity of the victim.
Additional victims may be uncovered as the inquiry and investigation into the event continues. There are steps which can be taken to determine whether or not a client's account information has been compromised, but the costs which are not yet covered in the event of stolen identity can amount to hundreds of dollars plus untold emotional and other distress. Those who fear they may have been one of the affected victims of the hackers should consider becoming part of the class action suit.
