SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, a leading shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, is investigating concerns as to whether Equifax Inc. (“Equifax” or the “Company”) (NYSE: EFX), and certain of its officers and/or directors, have violated consumer rights, violated federal and/or state securities laws, or breached their fiduciary duties to the Company’s shareholders in connection with a massive data breach targeting consumer data entrusted to Equifax.
Equifax is a consumer credit company with headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. On September 7, 2017, after-market hours, Equifax publicly announced its consumer data had been breached, which may have affected 143 million or more consumers whose financial and personal information was compromised while in possession of Equifax. Certain Equifax executives reportedly sold $1.8 million of their personal Equifax stock holdings shortly before news of the breach was publicly announced. Since the announcement, Equifax stock price has plunged, causing harm to investors.
Haeggquist & Eck, LLP is also leading an investigation into the cause of the breach, the steps the Company had in place to prevent such breaches, and the scope and magnitude of the personal consumer information that has been compromised.
