Default Can I force equifax to stop collecting my records?

Is there any legal way that I can demand that Equifax not collect any data on me and not keep my credit records?

Or are they legally entitled to do that even if I want them NOT to do it?

Obviously I am not happy with their data security, among other things.

I wish to inform you that it is the terms of the Fair Credit Reporting Act which will have jurisdiction in this matter. Your primary rights revolve around who is allowed to see the contents of the report. Equifax will maintain a report of all information related to your SSN/etc. regardless of your choice. However, you can choose not to share that information with anyone.

There is no way for you to prevent any of the three credit reporting agencies from collecting credit related information on you.

Your wants in the matter are irrelevant.

Well, we all had to live with that.

Is there anything else you aren't happy with?
