You can speak to our team now for help, and for guidance:
CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS
Change your access information for your Vision Direct account. If you use the same login and password for other websites, you should change those too.
KEEP A CLOSE EYE ON YOUR ACCOUNTS
Monitor your bank accounts for any suspicious activity. Online banking is often the easiest way.
If anything looks suspicious, contact your bank immediately. You may also want to ask for a new bank card just in case; especially since payment card data was stolen in the breach.
You could also ask your bank to set up alerts for anything that may be unusual.
WATCH OUT FOR SCAMS: FRAUD AND PHISHING
Don't be surprised if you are contacted by telephone or email by scammers. They often pose as the company at the centre of the breach (i.e. Vision Direct) and scam people into thinking they're contacting them to assist with the breach.
Never give out personal data to anyone. Watch out for phishing scams (usually by email) as well.
