  • Fraud victim has 'brutal' 3-year battle with Walmart and Equifax over damaged credit

    When thieves applied for a Walmart MasterCard under Olga Milman's name and racked up more than $1,500 in charges, police determined it was a clear case of fraud, yet the victim had to fight for three years to get Walmart and Equifax to correct her damaged credit record.

    "I was phoning every single month and spending an enormous amount of hours on the phone, phoning Equifax, then Walmart, then Equifax, then Walmart. I don't understand why this would take years," Milman said.

    Equifax is one of two credit rating bureaus in Canada — the other is TransUnion. They provide credit scores and information whenever someone applies for a mortgage, a loan, a credit card or to rent an apartment.
