The Equifax data breach affects about 1.2 million Nevadans, the state’s attorney general’s office said Wednesday.
If you have attempted to contact Equifax by phone at 1-866-447-7559 and have been unsuccessful, the company encourages you to reattempt your call.
According to Equifax, the number of employees at its dedicated call center has increased.
The call center is operational from 4 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Additionally, some consumers have expressed concern that, by signing up for Equifax’s free credit monitoring and free credit lock service, they are giving up their right to sue by agreeing to an arbitration clause.
Equifax recently clarified that it will not be requiring customers to agree to these terms.
Equifax has stated that it will no longer require credit card numbers when enrolling in the free service, and consumers will not be automatically renewed or charged for the service at the end of the one-year service period.
