It's such a common sense solution. Identity thieves aren't going to waste their time trying to unlock someone's credit when there is lower-hanging fruit out there. Plus, the security checks to unlock is another layer of information they might have trouble cracking.

The credit bureaus are charging to lock YOUR credit report because you cost them money by doing so. Right now Equifax is allow you to lock it for free until November 21st.

I'm siding with the lawyers and class action lawsuits. It's like rooting for the Ravens to beat the Patriots.
