Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Jaco Oil data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
On September 1, 2023, Jaco Oil Company alerted the Attorney General of California that files containing private data belonging to consumers had been copied from its computer network by an unauthorized individual. The company’s data breach notice letter revealed that the incident—which reportedly occurred on March 25 and was discovered the next day—compromised victims’ names, addresses, Social Security numbers and bank account information. The cyberattack may have also exposed consumers’ driver’s license or state identification card numbers, passport numbers, permanent resident identification numbers, information used for credit checks and other documents related to I-9 Employment Eligibility forms.
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 Jaco Oil to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
