Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating Bluefield University for a data breach of at least 23,195 individuals’ personal information. Sometime between April 29th and May 11th, 2023, an unauthorized third party breached Bluefield University’s computer system, stealing individuals’ personal information, including their names and Social Security numbers. Bluefield University recently began informing individuals of this breach on November 27th, 2023, through a written notification letter. All of the information stolen is likely 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 unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.
