If you’ve fallen victim to TalkTalk fraudsters and you need advice about claiming data breach compensation, we can help, and you may be eligible to join our action.
After the huge 2015 TalkTalk data breach, a number of customers – including ones we’ve helped – reported being contacted by fraudsters who were posing as TalkTalk. People we spoke to told us that the fraudsters knew things like their personal information, TalkTalk account details, and even information about complaints on their files. That’s how they convinced them they were the real deal.
As such, it’s believed that the fraudsters may have gained this information from the TalkTalk cyber-attack. Although the company has previously denied this is the case, we can only look at the evidence in front of us. And that’s why we have been taking compensation claims forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Can you claim compensation as a victim of TalkTalk fraudsters?
You may be eligible to claim compensation if you’ve fallen victim to TalkTalk fraudsters, and you were affected by the 2015 data breach.
This includes people who were informed some time ago that they were affected, and this also includes the recent additional people who have only just discovered they were affected by the breach.
If you’re a resident of England or Wales, we should be able to take your claim forward on a No Win, No Fee basis.
What can you claim for?
We must assess cases individually, and it all depends on the circumstances of your situation. What we will always aim to do is recover any monies lost to TalkTalk fraudsters if you were affected by the 2015 data breach.
It’s important to know that you may still be able to claim even if you got your money back, or if you didn’t lose any money at all. Data breach compensation amounts can account for any distress you’ve suffered over the loss of control of your personal information. We can also consider the distress by even being contacted by fraudsters as well.
