Equifax, The Work Number, and Your Paycheck

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

Equifax grabbed my attention this morning when I was looking over my news feed. Bob Sullivan over at The Red Tape Chronicles broke the clandestine story of The Work Number (owned by Equifax), and how they share your work and salary information without your permission. I was floored, but in retrospect, it only makes sense that companies would do this to make more money, unless they were told they couldn't.

*sigh* Personal ethics just don't seem to translate into business practices anymore.

It’s unfortunate that so many businesses these days don’t have respect for peoples’ privacy. Doing an online search for your name is sometimes scary with how much information shows up that you haven’t put out there yourself!
