I won a 9.1k judgement against Equifax. I will help you do it too, since the app that helped me is currently not working at donotpay.com. View this doc as a reference and then get your own local small claims form and fill them in the same way, replace name, address, court address, etc….. .
The court might serve the docs for you, as they did for me, or you may need to do it yourself, but it is easy to serve by mail with signature at USPS. I was in court on the same day as this guy, so his article will give you an idea of the experience – https://medium.com/@christianhaigh/i-won-8-000-from-equifax-in-small-claims-court-heres-how-you-can-too-f0ce6925c079 He won almost as much as I did – 8k. Here is the judgement I received:
If you really want to learn about this, read the Massachusettes AG’s complaint on behalf of her state (something every state AG should do)…..equifax-complaint
If you are in San Francisco or want to visit, you can watch my case on appeal on March 8, 9am at Dept. 525 in San Francisco Superior Court. Appeal has been continued to 3/29/18 at 9 am in Dept. 525. Equifax lawyer George Morris offered a “confidential 5k settlement” but I am not accepting.
The Federal Government won’t hold corporations responsible and neither will our state AGs, so we have to do it. They probably sold our info and then sold their stocks and retired. WTF!!! The company they hired to investigate their servers (Mandiant/FireEye) couldn’t find anything to show where all that data went from March – June, 2017. The same company was hired by Russia’s Alfa Bank and found no evidence of why the Russian bank was contacting Trump’s servers repeatedly and comprised 80% of the server’s activity. Wonder how much Mandiant got paid to find nothing. And to top it off, Mulvaney, head of Consumer Protection Bureau is not going to investigte Equifax at all.
