  1. Debra I appreciate the information. I am trying to go back into customer service. I am an older person and work in manufacturing without benefits and would like to get a position in customer service with a good company with benefits. I really do miss customer servcice. I am going to apply with Equifax. I keep getting emails to sell insurance, thats not what I want, so i’ll keep trying.
    Thank you
