Equifax - First the hacking, then the lawsuitsSeven hours is all it took for Equifax Inc to be hit with two lawsuits over a hacking that may have compromised personal information for 143 million American consumers. "Damages to the class are limited only to the imagination of thieves," John Yanchunis, a lawyer at Morgan & Morgan who filed one of the lawsuits, in Atlanta federal court, said in an interview on Friday. "This could be the gift that keeps on giving for years." The lawsuits were filed on behalf of consumers accusing Equifax of negligence, or wilful misconduct, in failing to properly safeguard Social Security and driver's license numbers, birth dates, addresses and sometimes credit card data.
