DeleteMe’s Equifax Review

Equifax is a credit reporting agency that provides background checks and reports, SSN search and credit records monitoring. You can remove yourself from Equifax via Opt-Out Prescreen, which supplies personal information in marketing lists to creditors and insurers which use these lists to make firm offers of credit or insurance. To remove yourself from Opt-Out Prescreen, you must fill out and mail their opt-out form. After this, it is not clear how long it will take them to remove your information.
