I merged littlebird's post into here, which is in the Personal Finance (Not Investing) forum (credit reporting).

You don't have any choice as to whether Equifax keeps a file on you. But clearly any company this incompetent should be avoided to the greatest extent possible. I have their website blocked at the router.
