easyJet data breach scams in the news
The media has been reporting about easyJet data breach scams, and we’re not surprised to see that people have fallen victim of fraud and theft.
Authorities are understood to have received a number of reports in the last few weeks involving crimes such as identity theft and ticket fraud. Almost £12,000.00 may have already been stolen from customers who are understood to have been victims of the data breach.
Victims are urged to take extra care given the increased risk of fraud with the details of nine million people exposed, and more fraud events may continue to occur.
A little information can go a very long way when it’s in the hands of criminals. News of the easyJet data breach scams do not come as a surprise to us as we have seen these kinds of incidents plenty of times before.
As a leading firm of data breach and consumer action specialists who have been fighting for the rights of privacy breach victims since 2014, we know the risks. The infamous TalkTalk data breach of 2015 resulted in victims being contacted by criminals who posed as representatives from the telecoms giant. Criminals used data that was involved in the cyberattack and they managed to convince people to hand over cash and access to accounts.
We have helped victims who have been targeted by such scams and we continue to represent victims for legal cases too.
This risk is why even personal data can be a lucrative catch for fraudsters and scammers. Even where financial data hasn’t been compromised, personal data alone can be enough for serious damage to be caused. With millions of people affected by the easyJet data breach, the pool of potential victims that could be targeted is substantial.
