Saw a Reddit post that by signing up you're waiving your right to participate in a class action lawsuit. Didn't read the whole thing. Is that true ?

If you want help from Equifax, there are strings attached...

Paging @(censored). Lol.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

IMHO the Equifax brand name is tarnished beyond repair. Whether the company will somehow survive and rebrand, or forced into bankruptcy by this fiasco, is still to be seen.

Due to the hack or their actions afterwards?

I would say due to the hack. How do people feel now that they found out that it was the cat guarding the milk?

Brand tarnished mostly due to actions.

Possibly going out of business is a combination.
