    If you guys want to make a quick 125 bucks (well, maybe not so quick it'll be months before they actually issue payments) today is your lucky day!

    Equifax was hit with a class action lawsuit stemming from their negligence in safeguarding our credit information. The website to claim a settlement is live and takes about two minutes to fill out.

    Easy money, sure. But would you willingly expose your personal info to hackers for $125. That's what I don't like about these large class action suits, they don't make the people affected whole at all.

    If you're eligible for the $125, your information was already exposed. Get your money.

    Oh of course not. It's peanuts compared the damage done. But the hack already happened, so there's no reason not to get your small piece of the pie. It's worth it if for no other reason than that equifax would almost surely rather you didn't.

    Yeah, I mean I'll take the $125, but is that fully compensating me? No.

    I'm super confused on how I gave anyone the impression I wasn't going to take the money. That's not what I was saying at all.

    If any of you get a call and it’s from “social security” and they have a warrant for you or your numbers going to be canceled or anything along those lines tell them “Stoked hopes you’re eaten by rabid chihuahuas you ****”

    I thought that they said during the story on the news last night that you had to prove damages had occurred. I could be wrong.
