This is changing... looks like more and more like good marketing! Well nearly. For sure, it becomes more and more plausible these email, don't they? I show the link below in regular text. Obviously nothing to do with Equifax.

Okay... well... the formatting of this email was really bad. I suppose they used MS-Word to generate the HTML. No other tool can do such a bad job, is there?!
