CONCORD, N.H. — Numerous lawsuits seeking class-action status have been filed against credit monitoring company Equifax over a massive data breach, including one representing New Hampshire consumers.
The lawsuit filed by two New Hampshire women in federal court on Thursday requests a trial and seeks a lifetime of credit monitoring and identity theft protection services from a different company.
Jennifer Greenwald and Cynthia Robbins say they and others have suffered as a result of the breach and had to pay for credit reports, credit freezes, monitoring services and other protective measures following the release of their personal information.
The breach exposed the information of 143 million Americans. Two officers are leaving the company and its CEO is to testify before Congress.
