Equifax is going to make you work for that 125 bucks it owes each of you: Biz sneaks out Friday night rule change

The math doesn't add up.

A 575M fine spread across 175M people comes out to 3.29 per person. That's not even the cost of a decent sandwich at a take away.

175M people getting 125 each comes to 21,875,000,000 which is a far cry from what the FTC was so happy to crow about.

You want to punish them for fucking up so badly? Make them pay each person an even 1M instead. Not only will that make them sit up & take notice, it'll eviscerate & disembowel them in a way that will make sure they never make that mistake again. Hold the C-level execs personally, financially, criminally accountable & there would be far fewer such fuck ups in the future.

You want to earn the big bucks? Fine, but it's your neck on the chopping block if shit hits the fan.
