Default Equifax Wins Major IRS Contract

Remember how Equifax recently admitted to a preposterously bad hack of their accounts that revealed many people's private data? That hack that they KNEW wa slikely coming months in advance, yet they did nothing about?

Well, it turns out that -- on the same day this news went public -- The IRS awarded them a no-bid contract worth upwards of seven million dollars. The nature of this contract? Providing personal identity verification services to the IRS.


Reportedly, at least one Congressman thought he might be reading an Onion parody article when he first saw the news online.
