Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Progressive Leasing data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
Progressive Leasing, a business in the retail and financial services industry, experienced a cybersecurity incident on September 11, 2023, in which an unauthorized third party gained access to its network and certain files containing personal information of customers and employees. A preliminary investigation indicates that the unauthorized access first occurred on September 9, 2023.
By October 9, the company had identified that personal information — including names, addresses, phone numbers, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, email addresses and potentially financial information — belonging to 193,055 individuals was among the documents acquired without authorization.
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 Progressive Leasing to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
