The Better Business Bureau serving eastern North Carolina is warning consumers on its website about a new scam involving Equifax. Business are apparently receiving faxes that appear to be from Equifax, one of the three major consumer reporting agencies, but are actually from scammers. The faxes seek sensitive financial information and asks the businesses to fax the information back to "Equifax" - but its not Equifax who is sending the faxes. The faxes are fraudulent and should be ignored.
Just an FYI - before you ever respond to any solicitation for personal or private information, confirm with the alleged source that the request is legitimate.
