Fraud compensation from a data breach

You can be eligible to claim fraud compensation where the crime has arisen from a data breach, data leak or a hack.

It only takes a little bit of personal information for criminals to commit fraud or identity theft. Where payment card data has been exposed, the risks can be even higher, and victims can be at an imminent threat of losing money.

Ultimately, if the fraud has arisen because your personal information has been exposed or misused by an organisation, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation against them.

Know your rights when claiming for fraud compensation

It’s important to know your rights when making a fraud compensation claim, especially when victims can lose tens of thousands of pounds in some cases

It can be hard to stop a transfer of money once it has already been initiated. Anyone who has fallen victim to a fraud incident will know that it’s not an easy thing to stop, and once the money has left your account, it’s probably gone forever.

But that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer the consequences of losing money if it wasn’t your fault. If the fraud incident happened as a direct consequence of a data breach, data leak, or a cyberattack, you can be entitled to claim compensation from the organisation responsible for the information exposure.

And we can help you with that.

TalkTalk data breach: a famous example

It might help if we give you a famous example of where people have initiated fraud compensation cases against an organisation who’s responsible for information exposure.

One of the first ones that springs to mind is the TalkTalk data breach incident. We know that fraudsters have targeted TalkTalk customers and passed themselves of as TalkTalk in order to steal money from them. Although TalkTalk has previously suggested there’s no link between the 2015 data breach and such incidents, we don’t think that’s the case.

When victims of fraud are telling us that the criminals knew their TalkTalk account information and even knew they had complaints on their account, and used that as the cover story to convince them they were genuine, you have to question where that has come from.

If this has happened to you, you may be able to join our live compensation action. We’ve previously helped people who have lost substantial amounts of money from a TalkTalk fraud incident. We may be able help you too.
