OUR DATA LEAK LAWYERS ARE FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE IN OVER 20 DIFFERENT DATA BREACH ACTIONS, INCLUDING FOOTBALL CLUB DATA BREACHES
Liverpool FC Hacked!
News that Liverpool FC was hacked hit the media in the summer of 2018. It's understood that around 150 of their season ticket holders were victims of the hack as a result of an attachment on a club email account being compromised.
The attachment is understood to have included the following data:
- Dates of birth
- Home / billing addresses
- Email addresses
- Membership numbers
- Banking data
Victims of the Liverpool FC hack are understood to have been notified, and the Information Commissioner's Office (the UK's data watchdog) and the police are said to have been informed.
According to one supporter, the banking data included bank account numbers and sort codes, which can mean an imminent risk of fraud. Although the number of victims has been confirmed so far as 150, we don't yet know whether there are any more victims that could be identified.
With some 26,000 season ticket holders and hundreds of millions of fans worldwide, any unauthorised access to Liverpool FC data could be huge.
In terms of who's responsible, all we know is that Liverpool FC was hacked by an unknown third-party. Victims of the hack are being offered credit-monitoring services, which is a standard offer in the wake of a data breach these days. However, victims of the Liverpool FC data breach could be entitled to make a claim for compensation as well, and we can help you.
Liverpool FC Data Breach Compensation Advice
You may be entitled to make a claim for compensation as a victim of the Liverpool FC data breach. This isn't the first high-profile football club data breach action we're running as one of over 20 different data breach group actions we're fighting for justice in.
Even a small data breach can leave a victim vulnerable to fraud or potentially falling victim to criminal activity. In a case where specific data has been hacked, victims can be at risk of being contacted by criminals posing as the organisations at the centre of a breach.
We can tell you from experience that the criminals can be incredibly convincing, and when banking information has been exposed in a breach, victims can be at an immediate risk of fraud.
Victims claiming compensation for the Liverpool FC data breach can be entitled to damages for:
- The distress caused by the incident and the distress associated with personal and sensitive data that may be in the hands of criminals
- Financial losses - which given that Liverpool FC was hacked could be likely as the exposure looks to have been caused by persons with malicious intent
You don't have to have suffered a financial loss to make a claim. You can be entitled to claim for the distress suffered from a breach, which in the lowest categories can be valued between £1,000.00 and £3,000.00.
