About The Lending Works Data Breach
Based on information provided to us about the Lending Works data breach so far, we understand that there has been an 'unauthorised third-party access' event of an email account belonging to one of their staff. The email account contained customer data, and Lending Works are unable to rule out that this data has been accessed and taken.
The incident is understood to have taken place on 7th February 2019. The company has since taken measures to enhance their security.
Data that may have been exposed in the Lending Works hack is said to include:
- Bank account numbers
- Sort codes
This is said to be a part of the information that was provided when the loan arrangement with the company was set up. Given the nature of the data that may have been exposed, victims of the Lending Works cyber-attack may be at an imminent risk of fraud. The Financial Conduct Authority and the Information Commissioner's Office has been informed of the incident.

Our Data Leak Lawyers are fighting for justice in over 20 different data breach group actions and multi-party cases. This is on top of the thousands of people who have come to us for help over the years we have been fighting for data breach compensation.
We do not yet know how many people are affected by this incident. We have been unable to find any information released on the company's website about the incident to date, and we can only assume that all victims of the breach have been duly notified.
Following the Lending Works cyber-attack, the company has recommended that victims of the incident be vigilant for suspicious activity on their bank accounts and keep an eye on their credit reports. They have also warned about the potential for unsolicited communications, which could include phishing scams. From what we know so far, they have also offered the usual 12-months of identity monitoring that has become a bit of a standard these days after data breach incidents.
Claim Compensation As A Victim Of The Lending Works Data Breach
You may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation as a victim of the Lending Works hack. The distress that a victim can suffer from a data breach is something you can claim compensation for. You can also claim for any losses and expenses, which can include money stolen as a result of data that has been hacked.
You do not have to have suffered a financial loss to make a claim.
We've agreed to help victims of the Lending Works cyber-attack on a No Win, No Fee basis for those who fit our eligibility criteria. If you have been notified that you were a victim of the incident, we should be able to take a case forward for you right away if you're a resident or England or Wales.
How Much Compensation Can You Claim As A Victim Of The Lending Works Hack?
As a victim of the Lending Works cyber-attack, you could be entitled to claim thousands of pounds in compensation, even if you haven't suffered a financial loss.
It all depends on how the incident has affected you.
In a case where there has been a loss of control of basic data, you could be eligible to claim in the region of £1,000.00 to £3,000.00. We always argue that the loss of control over banking information is serious, especially when victims can be at an immediate risk of fraud. This is a factor we have to consider in the Lending Works hack.
