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.
Claiming compensation as a victim of TalkTalk fraudsters
The way that you may be eligible to claim compensation as a victim of TalkTalk fraudsters is if you were also a victim of the 2015 data breach.
If we can show that it’s likely that the data used by the criminals was taken from the 2015 breach, you may be able to make a claim. TalkTalk has previously dismissed the idea that criminals have targeted people off the back of the breach, but the connections are there.
If you’ve had money stolen, you may be able to recover this as part of claim. If you have already been refunded money, or if the fraud attempt was unsuccessful, you may still be eligible to have a case.
You can claim for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information, and for any added distress of being targeted by fraudsters.
