Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

I assume you are asking how you find out if your personal information was compromised in Equifax's data breach. Equifax has made it easy for people to find that out.

Just go to www.equifaxsecurtiy2017.com

Click on the button that says, "Am I impacted?" You'll be asked by Equifax to provide them with your last name and the last 6 digits of your social security number. Once you do that, you will find out immediately whether your information was compromised and if you need to take precautions against identity theft.

If this is not what you wanted to know, let me know and I'll be happy to add to my answer.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
