The battle against scammers continues, and there are several things people should be aware of. One is a second breach of the credit reporting agency Equifax, and another involves a company that has been going door to door around Taylorville trying to sell it's product to residents, with some even claiming to be with Ameren.
Brian Hile with the Taylorville Police Department and the Christian County TRIAD program says although some of these door to door salesmen have gotten the proper permits from the city, you don't have to answer the door to them, and urged residents to give the police department a call should you have an issue.
Meanwhile even more people have had their information compromised through a second security breach at the credit reporting company Equifax. Rich Peters with the Christian County TRIAD program says putting a fraud alert on your credit isn't a bad idea.
Hile and Peters appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
