Financial Asset Management Systems Data Breach:
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Financial Asset Management Systems data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
On March 31, 2023, Financial Asset Management Systems (FAMS), which offers financial collection services, experienced a network disruption that affected its ability to access certain files on its network. Subsequent investigation found that unauthorized individuals were able to acquire specific information from FAMS' network. After completing a thorough review, FAMS initiated the process of notifying its affected clients starting from August 31, 2023.
Letters have been sent to both customers of Navient Portfolio Management, LLC and Loan Science, LLC. FAMS' online data breach notice says information including names, billing account numbers, costs paid and balances due may have been disclosed; however, its consumer notification letters also mention that Social Security numbers were breached.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Financial Asset Management Systems to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
