In case you missed it, more than a month and a half ago one of the largest credit reporting agencies was hacked, exposing all the data necessary to steal the identities of millions of people.
Oh but you didnt hear about it because Equifax didnt tell anyone.

Until now.  And their incompetence isnt just one little slip, but rather may be snowballing.

And?  It's entirely possible that a test record in their database with those parameters exists.  And may have been hacked.  As a software tester this wouldn't be something out of the realm of possibility.  Is it bad practice to leave test records in a production database?  Sure it is.  But it isn't unheard of.

Unless you're trying to make another point?

WASHINGTON ― The credit monitoring company that let criminals steal personal information pertaining to nearly half the U.S. population is offering free credit monitoring to those affected ― but there’s a catch.

Victims of the Equifax security breach who sign up for the company’s “complimentary” service will only get one free year.
After that, unless they proactively cancel, they may have to pay. The terms of use say customers must have internet access and a credit or debit card to sign up.

For weeks, Equifax customer service has been directing victims to a fake phishing site
