Best Buy recently admitted that hackers have obtained information from the “secure” accounts of people who shop at BestBuy.com. Hackers have apparently used this information to make fraudulent purchases using the identity and credit card information of Best Buy customers. Companies that obtain their customers’ confidential information have a legal obligation to maintain the security of that information.
When companies fail to protect their customers’ confidential information, they put their customers at risk of identity theft. Our attorneys have brought multiple lawsuits on behalf of victims of data breaches. If you are a Best Buy customer, you should monitor your credit card accounts very closely for strange charges. If you believe you are a victim of identity theft or credit card fraud stemming from this breach, please contact us to discuss your legal options
