Capital One Faces Lawsuit After Data Breach Compromises Over 100 million Consumers
Cohen & Malad, LLP filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of more than 100 million consumers whose personal identifying information was compromised after a hacker accessed data entrusted to Capital One. Cyber thieves gained access to sensitive information on past and current cardholders as well as consumers who applied for, but ultimately were not issued payment cards. The stolen data included name, address, date of birth, social security numbers, phone numbers, email addresses, bank account numbers, self-reported income, credit scores, and fragments of transaction history.
Capital One announced the data breach on July 29, 2019, ten days after it discovered the sensitive consumer information was compromised.
