How useful it is that they dont tell you what service it was that was hacked. Was it yahoo again? Microsoft? Apple? PayPal? Etc. Worst part is this company wants you to voluntarily provide your email and potentially your password to see if your account information has been hacked. Like I trust them any more than I would trust "Steve from Microsoft Tech Support" with an Indian accent. Smh
