Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating Wenco Managment (“Wenco”) for its data security practices in the wake of a data breach. Wenco manages dozens of Wendy’s franchises in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan.
Hackers compromised the Wenco health benefit plan, stealing the names and Social Security numbers (SSN) of tens of thousands of employees, as well as other information. Wenco discovered the breach on August 21, 2022, but has only recently begun informing employees.
Given how long it has been since the breach, hackers may have already been able to sell the data or otherwise benefit from the fraudulent misuse of such information. People affected by the data breach may have already noticed (or may soon notice) one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity: tax fraud, including theft of a tax return; unauthorized credit card inquiries or charges; or requests for loans or benefits in an individual’s name without their consent.
Have you recently received a data breach notification letter from Wenco, or another Wendy’s Francisee?
