The Worst-Case Scenario After the Equifax Hack

A devastating cyberattack on Equifax has compromised critically sensitive information on 143 million U.S. consumers.

You may think that identity theft ends after a couple canceled credit cards, but Lizette speaks to victims who spent years rebuilding their shattered finances and lives. Lizette and Brad also outline what you can do right now to protect yourself -- although nothing can guarantee complete safety on today's internet.
