Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the PHH Mortgage data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
On June 3, 2023, Pension Benefit Information LLC (PBI), a third-party vendor of PHH Mortgage, admitted to a security incident involving its file transfer software application, MOVEit. PBI, which uses MOVEit for file transfers of PHH Mortgage consumer data to conduct death checks for reverse borrowers, discovered that an unidentified individual accessed one of its MOVEit Transfer servers on May 29 and May 30 of this year and downloaded certain data from the system.
After investigating the incident, PBI found that the compromised server contained personal information belonging to approximately 111,285 individuals associated with PHH Mortgage and is now sending notice on behalf of the company to those affected. Customers’ names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and addresses were among the data stolen in the breach.
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 PHH Mortgage to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
