    So. Don't get that excited for the cash
    Or take the credit protection?

    If everyone who was affected filed and claimed the money, you’d receive less than $1. I’m assuming the payout will ultimately be somewhere around $25.

    Washington, D.C. (CNN Business) - So many people are seeking cash payments from Equifax following its disastrous 2017 data breach, there may not be enough claims money for everyone to receive a $125 check, the Federal Trade Commission warned on Wednesday.

    Now, the FTC is trying to persuade Americans to pick a different option: take Equifax's offer of free credit monitoring instead. "Millions of people" have logged onto a claims website set up by the federal government, the FTC said, following a multi-million-dollar settlement with Equifax announced last Monday. The site has been live for a week.

    just heard on the news "the actual payout could be as low as $2."

    depending on how much value you put on your time, you might lose money on this one.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    I love how some people think the government is out to get them while others think the government is incompetent. (Wait......maybe it's both!!)
