Tasteful Selections, LLC's Response

In response to the breach, Tasteful Selections, LLC has been proactive in addressing the situation. They have arranged for affected customers to enroll in a complimentary 24-month credit monitoring service through Equifax.

The company has also recommended that customers remain vigilant by monitoring their account statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity. Tasteful Selections, LLC has provided detailed instructions on how to enroll in the credit monitoring service and how to place fraud alerts or credit freezes on their reports.

Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe you have been affected by this data breach, it is crucial to take action to protect your personal information:

  1. Enroll in Credit Monitoring: Take advantage of the free credit monitoring service offered by Tasteful Selections, LLC. Visit Equifax to activate your service using the provided activation code.
  2. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly check your bank statements, credit card statements, and any other financial accounts for unauthorized transactions.
  3. Check Your Credit Reports: You can obtain a free credit report from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus once per year at Annual Credit Report or by calling 1-877-322-8228.
  4. Place a Fraud Alert: Contact one of the major credit bureaus to place a fraud alert on your credit reports, which will help prevent new credit accounts from being opened in your name without additional verification.
  5. Consider a Credit Freeze: A more severe option than a fraud alert, a credit freeze will restrict access to your credit report, making it more difficult for identity thieves to open accounts in your name.
