Tennessee's attorney general said information was stolen from more than 3 million state residents when hackers infiltrated the credit reporting company Equifax.

In a letter to Equifax on Tuesday, Attorney General Herbert Slatery said he's echoing a letter from 44 fellow attorneys general expressing concern over the breach.

Slatery wrote that Equifax should extend its deadline for free credit monitoring services from November 21 until at least January 31.

He wrote that Equifax should also extend a November 21 deadline to reimburse customer fees for freezing Equifax credit reports and should reimburse fees from other credit reporting agencies.

Slatery requested copies of notices Equifax has been sending to people whose dispute-related documents were accessed or credit card numbers were exposed.

Slatery said Equifax should let his office know about any scams.
