Equifax staff direct customers to fake website. It gets even worse for the beleaguered company...

Credit rating firm Equifax has apologised after it mistakenly directed some customers to an imposter website via its Twitter page.

The firm recently disclosed a data breach affecting more than 143 million people, and set up a new website to share information with customers.

But it mistakenly tweeted the wrong web address several times, leading some customers to a fake website.

One security researcher told the BBC it was a "massive faux-pas".
