  1. Sharon Mathis-Washington : This makes me have 2nd. thoughts about personal information that I have on line that is supposed to locked and protected. I and others need to examine personal Information that is not protected as it should have been. I will no longer pay Bill’s on line ; place orders on line and share less with my Physicians Information. I received Information stating my medical had been breached. How des a consumer protect themselves with Equifax’s Dark Web ; Notron and even Life Lock, etc. Some of these companies even charge a hefty monthly fee. This country (My America/ United States) has just gone to HELL with a don’t care rating. OMG, Please restore my country Heavenly Father in JESUS’S name.
