Force credit bureaus to let consumers freeze, unfreeze accounts without charge

Tuesday , October 10, 2017 - 7:00 AM

I am appalled at the cavalier way Equifax has treated our personal information during its recent security breach. I am angry that I now have to pay each of the credit reporting bureaus to freeze my account and then again to unfreeze it when I need more credit.

Even when requesting to pay for a freeze, they make it so complicated and cumbersome. Congress should require the credit reporting bureaus to let people freeze and unfreeze their accounts without charge.
