TalkTalk fraudsters legal assistance

unwanted marketing calls

If you’ve fallen victim to so-called TalkTalk fraudsters as a result of your information being exposed in the 2015 data breach, we can help you.

Some of the people who have asked us for help who were affected by the TalkTalk data breach have been targeted by fraudsters. Criminals have contacted people posing as TalkTalk, and they’ve been able to convince some people that they’re the real deal. They’ve achieved this because they’ve been able to provide personal data for the victims, including TalkTalk account information, and even details about legitimate complaints that have been made.

We can only assume that the criminals have got hold of this information because of the 2015 breach. That’s why anyone who has been targeted by fraudsters may be able to join the compensation action we’ve been running for the last few years.

Police Federation of England and Wales data breach help

police data breach

We’ve taken cases on with our No Win, No Fee policy for victims of the recent Police Federation of England and Wales data breach incidents.

The cyber attacks that hit the PFEW took place in March 2019; the first on 9th, and the second on the 21st. Neither were thought to have been specifically targeting PFEW and are understood to have been part of a wider malware incident.

PFEW has confirmed that they’re unable to rule out that information has been exposed. As they’re unable to rule it out, we can take claims for data breach compensation forward for anyone suffering distress as a result of the incident. There could be as many as 120,000 police employees that have been hit by the breaches.

Action taken in wake of Marriott cyber attack

Action has been taken in the wake of the massive Marriott cyber attack that was revealed last year, both here in the U.K. and in the U.S.

In the U.K., victims may be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation if you were one of the 500 million people affected. If you’re a resident in England or Wales, we can represent you for the case. A claim is separate to any enforcement action and fines that may be issue by the ICO (Information Commissioner’s Office). Those fines alone could end up in the hundreds of millions.

As well as claims and fines, testimonies and apologies took place last month as well. Here’s the latest.

We could see a huge Marriott GDPR fine

data breaches expected to soar with introduction of new gdpr rules

The scale of the Marriott GDPR fine that could be issued after last year’s huge data breach incident could set the precedent. And it could be significant.

The Marriott data breach saw a wealth of personal and account data exposed for a number of years between 2014 and 2018. It affected some 500m people and may have compromised passports and exposed travel information. As such, this is an incredibly serous data breach, and any punishment issued will need to reflect that.

The costs of dealing with the breach, plus the legal action costs and regulatory fines, could be monstrous for the hotel chain.

You can join the Equifax Lawsuit in the UK that we have been helping clients for since news broke of the data breach back in 2017.

This was a preventable breach that has caused distress to a number of victims who were caught up in the incident. The vulnerability with Equifax’s systems should have been identified earlier as well.

If you’ve yet to join the Equifax lawsuit in the UK, there’s still time to do so. But you should get involved ASAP to avoid missing any key deadlines in the action.

Dixons Carphone data breach compensation

mobiles and apps

You still have time to join the Dixons Carphone data breach compensation action we launched, and you can claim on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The massive 2017 Dixons Carphone data breach was  huge and affected millions of people. Although the breach took place in 2017, the news of the incident was only reported a year later in 2018. The reason for the shocking delay was apparently down to the discovery of the breach after internal changes and investigations by the troubled company.

The legal action for justice is well underway, but you still have time to join and start your case today.
