I would be really happy if you help me answer the questions.
I tried to place a fraud alert using Equifax online form. They ask you to give your SSN, date of birth and other personal information. So now I am having doubts if it was a good decision, because maybe hackers can have an access to my information.
And also I tried to call their phone number 8887660008, and the same story, they asked for my SSN. How safe is it? Now I am getting a bit paranoid with all these ID theft stories and I can't sleep or eat well.
It is very strange that when I submitted my information trough their site they said they are unable to complete the process and need me to send my documents by post. The same response I got when trying to place a fraud alert by phone. Please, help! Is it safe what I have done or not?
Thank you in advance for paying attention to this problem
