Important Message about the Equifax Data Breach

This was sent to customers of Logix Federal Credit Union

Important Message about the
Equifax Data Breach

As you have likely heard, the credit bureau Equifax suffered a data breach that has the potential to impact 143 million Americans. This breach occurred because of unauthorized access to Equifax’s systems, and was not in any way caused by unauthorized access to any of the Credit Union’s systems. While there is no way to know with certainty whether you are affected, you can take several steps to protect yourself.

  • To help determine if your information may have been compromised, Equifax has established a dedicated website,, which includes information about the breach, a search tool to determine if you may have been impacted, and the option to opt in to credit monitoring services offered by Equifax. You can also call Equifax at 866-447-7559 any day of the week, including weekends, from 4:00 am – 10:00 pm PT.
  • Visit for resources on identity theft, freezing your credit report, and steps to take with the three different credit bureaus to dispute any unauthorized activity.
  • If you experience fraud on your account, place a fraud alert with any of the three credit bureaus – Experian, Equifax, or Trans Union – to alert potential creditors and lenders to take extra steps to identify you.
  • Check your credit report for suspicious activity. Get a free copy of your credit report every year at If you find any unauthorized activity, notify the related financial institution or other agency immediately.
  • Consider signing up for a service that routinely monitors your credit and protects your identity. Logix offers this type of service through Merchants Information Services, which also includes assistance with recovering your identity should it be stolen.
  • Finally, consider activating two services available through Online Banking to further protect your account: Multi-Factor Authentication and Customizable Text and Email Alerts. Turn on Multi-Factor Authentication and receive a passcode alert to successfully log in each time an attempt is made to access your Online Banking account.

Mercado Restaurant Coming to Pasadena @SouthLakeAvenue @chefelmexicano

Jesse Gomez owner of Mercado restaurants is reported to be opening a new location in Pasadena, where Seco recently closed. This was previously the location Cafe 140 South and Crocodile Cafe. Apparently the Smith brothers gave it their best shot with this location and the remodels after each opening. It is sad to see the closing of Seco, but we look forward to Mercado opening, reportedly in early 2018.


More about Jesse Gomez and Executive Chef/Partner Jose Acevedo here.

Mercado would bring a modern Mexican option to Pasadena.  With several locations around Los Angeles, this location would be a great fit offering diners on South Lake another option.

140 South Lake Ave, Pasadena, CA

This location will offer lunch and dinner with favorites from other Mercado locations.  See some of the menu items here or visit the website

South Lake has seen a rise in dining options recently, with Paul Martin’s, Del Frisco, Urban Plates, and the under construction and soon to be opening Arbour Restaurant, Granville, and Nicks.

Microsoft Windows Promotes Edge Browser When Google Chrome & Firefox Browsers Are Used

Has anyone noticed and been annoyed when you launch Firefox or Chrome and a popup appears with a message that Firefox is slow, or Chrome uses battery, these may be subtle messages to some, but annoying to others.

Microsoft obviously wants users to use Edge, but this practice seems a little out of sorts.  Maybe Firefox and Chrome could do the same thing when Edge is opened?  But if they did, perhaps Microsoft would sue them…
