Pingora Loan Servicing Data Breach Investigation
Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Denver, Colorado-based mortgage servicing company Pingora Loan Servicing (“Pingora”) for failing to safeguard sensitive customer financial information in a data breach that occurred in December of 2021. The data breach occurred when an unauthorized third-party hacked into Pingora’s computer systems and accessed certain files that contained highly sensitive customer information. Pingora determined that the data breach affected over 160,000 customers’ data, including names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and loan application information.
Although Pingora concluded its investigation by no later than early March of 2022, it waited over a month to notify its customers of the data breach. Due to this lapse in time between the breach and Pingora’s notice to affected customers, hackers may have already been able to acquire and sell the compromised information or otherwise fraudulently misuse it for their personal gain. As a result of previous similar data breaches, victims of data theft have been forced to spend money on credit monitoring services and/or the impact of the fraudulent misuse of their personally identifiable information.
Some individuals affected by the Pingora data breach may have noticed one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to the sensitive information provided to Pingora: identity theft, suspicious credit and/or debit card charges, unauthorized withdrawals from a checking or savings account, requests for government services or loans, or credit accounts fraudulently opened in their name.
