MARLTON, N.J., Jan. 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Approximately 16.6 million consumers are being notified that their confidential information was compromised when hackers were able to access the computer systems of LoanDepot. The data breach lawyers at Console & Associates, P.C. are investigating claims on behalf of anyone affected by the LoanDepot breach, hoping to fully inform them of the risks they face in the wake of the breach as well as their legal rights.
The sensitive personal data of an unconfirmed number of patients has been compromised. Now, patients’ full names, Social Security numbers and medical information may be in the hands of criminals, putting victims at a greater risk of identity theft and other frauds.
The sensitive personal data of more than 16 million consumers has been compromised. Now, victims’ full names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth may be in the hands of criminals, putting victims at a greater risk of identity theft and other frauds.
On January 22, 2024, LoanDepot filed a notice with the Securities and Exchange Commission describing a data breach affecting consumers nationwide.
According to the notice, the data breach affected an estimated 16.6 victims, presumably customers who applied for or took out loans from the company.
LoanDepot notes that the incident stemmed from a “cyber incident” requiring the company to take its systems offline. LoanDepot worked to restore normal operations over the course of the coming weeks. Then, on January 22, 2024, LoanDepot filed a notice with the Securities and Exchange Commission briefly describing the incident. Most notable about the company’s filing, however, is the fact that an estimated 16.6 million consumers were affected by the breach.
