Equifax Melts Down Under Worried Consumer Surge

As of early Wednesday afternoon, all three major credit reporting agencies intermittently gave error messages, preventing consumers from filing online requests to have their credit reports frozen. Equifax's website said "System Currently Unavailable - Error 500." It suggested consumers try contacting the other credit bureaus. At one point, TransUnion's website could not be accessed at all. Later, it put up an error page featuring a stock photo of a model sitting at a computer, with the caption, "The website is temporarily unavailable. Please check back later."
