Compensation if your debit or credit card is hacked

If your debit or credit card is hacked, you could be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation, even if no money was stolen or if you’ve been refunded.

If you have lost money, we can include this as part of a legal case as well. However, you don’t have to have suffered an actual financial loss to be able to make a No Win, No Fee claim with us.

The distress that victims can suffer when this kind of personal and sensitive information is exposed can be substantial. Data breach compensation pay-outs can reflect the distress that people suffer from by the loss of control of their personal information. In this area of law, we are experts with a proven track record of settling damages claims over several years.

What to do if your debit or credit card is hacked

If your debit or credit card is hacked, you should contact your bank immediately and follow their advice in terms of securing your accounts.

You should also keep a close eye on your accounts and speak to your bank about setting up additional security checks and alerts.

If it was a credit card alone, you can be more secure because the Consumer Credit Act can ensure that you’re not at a loss. It does depend on the circumstances and how your data has been exposed, but this is why I always recommend that people shop online using credit cards as opposed to a debit card.

Claiming compensation

If a debit or credit card is hacked as a result of a data breach incident, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Hackers are targeting your payment information!

It can be a common occurrence when a debit or credit card is hacked because hackers are targeting big companies as well as software infrastructure firms to steal people’s financial and payment card information.

With some infrastructure firms providing software to multiple companies, it can only take one system flaw to potentially expose the banking information for countless victims shopping with several businesses.

One of the classic ways hackers are stealing credit and debit card information is by injecting malicious code into servers and systems. They can then copy information entered into payment systems, whether that’s online, or even at Point of Sale (POS) systems in shops.

We saw this with the British Airways data breach that we’re on the Steering Committee for, and for other actions we’re representing people in such as the Ticketmaster data breach. Criminals can get away with a wealth of information about potentially millions of people, and it can be used for serious crimes like fraud and identity theft. Data can also be easily sold on the “dark web”.
