Migliaccio & Rathod, LLP, is investigating TMX Finance LLC, parent company of TitleMax, TitleBucks, and InstaLoan, for a data breach. TitleMax (sometimes spelled Title Max), TitleBucks, and InstaLoan are short-term loan companies. Nearly five million customers across these companies have lost their personal information to cybercriminals.
Cybercriminals broke into TMX’s computer network starting in December of last year. Contained in those systems was data about customers and lenders, including Social Security numbers (SSNs), dates of birth, first and last names, addresses, and financial account information With such a wide range of information, TMX had an obligation to protect it.
All of the information released is valuable and dangerous. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web.
