With confidence in our reporting agencies at a all time low another completely avoidable hole in their security has surfaced. Experian, one of the big 3 reporting agencies, let’s you remove your credit freeze with a simple tick box and a 4 digit code. How does one get that code you may ask? Well all you have to do is ask nice enough and they’ll just give to you.

With the procedures being used to validate you identity being so weak it is most definitely important for everybody to stay vigilant. Watch out for yourself out there friends.
