The FTC Pleads With Claimants to Accept Credit Monitoring After Pitiful Equifax Money Pot Empties — Pixel Envy:

Consumers could never be fully compensated for the impact of this breach, but announcing this as a settlement of over $575 million with $300 million going towards credit monitoring services is misleading at best. Equifax also did not have to admit culpability, and the CEO responsible retired with a compensation package with a minimum $18 million value — more than half this $31 million pot that could be split between 147 million affected consumers.

This settlement is infuriating and insulting.

Couldn’t have said it better.
