This has absolutely nothing to do with moving Costa Rica...but I wanted to remind you to claim your $125 (or more) anyways
Every Tuesday, I write up some info or a helpful tip about moving to Costa Rica and share it with you. But today, I just couldn't bring myself to write anything because there's a more pressing matter at hand (if you're from the US): the chance to claim $125...or much more!
This isn't my money I'm giving away, of course, nor is it a contest or "free" money. It's actually part of the class-action settlement that credit giant Equifax just agreed to.
I know, nothing to do wth Costa Rica, right? But just hear me out and you'll be thankful that you did.
Back in 2017, Experian suffered a massive data breach that compromised the personal financial information of up to 147 million Americans! As part of the settlement brought by the FTC, Experian agreed to a $700 million payout to make amends, the majority of it in a Victim Compensation Fund.
So, if you were one of those people whose data was stolen in the breach, Equifax owes you some restitution.
In fact, if you are one of those 147 million, you automatically qualify for $125 OR 10 years free credit monitoring for all credit bureaus. If you suffered more financial damage or detriment (like ID theft, credit hack, etc.), you can claim more.
It's also super simple and takes about three minutes.
To see if you're eligible, just go to this link and type in your last name and last six digits of your social: https://eligibility.equifaxbreachsettlement.com/en/eligibility
And if you are, go to this link and answer a few simple questions and you'll receive a confirmation for your $125 cheque in the mail within 90 days (or other compensation you choose/claim): https://www.equifaxbreachsettlement.com
Don't worry - this is totally legit and you can see these links go right to the Equifax website.
Sorry if you're Canadian or European or from somewhere else and this is boring "Yankee" business, but I didn't want to pass up the chance to help my expat friends here claim their $125.
And now that you have a $125 cheque coming, how about finally purchasing the Moving to Costa Rica Handbook? Yup, I couldn't resist!
