BW: How Those Impacted by the 2015 Cyber Attack Against Anthem Who Were Under 18 at the Time Can Get a Credit Freeze (PRESS RELEASE)

If you know any under-18 victims of the 2015 Anthem insurance company hack, let them know about this offer from Anthem, which Anthem apparently released last night at 8pm on BusinessWire, because when you want to inform your customers there’s no time like 8pm on Friday night. This is a PRESS RELEASE. “Anthem is offering a special minor credit freeze program to parents and legal guardians of minors whose information was involved in the 2015 cyber attack against the company…. Working closely with the three nationwide consumer credit reporting agencies – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion, Anthem is offering a program to allow a credit freeze for children across all three bureaus. Anthem will cover the cost of the credit freeze for this program as well as the cost of removing the credit freeze at a later date. As part of this program, Anthem will also offer to reimburse parents or legal guardians who paid for a credit freeze for their child after the announcement of Anthem’s cyber attack. In addition, for those children who became adults after January 27, 2015, Anthem will provide reimbursements for setting an adult credit freeze now.”
