The Law Offices of Scott Glovsky recently filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of California Anthem customers who had their private information stolen in a massive data breach. The Vasquez v. Blue Cross of California dba Anthem Blue Cross complaint alleges that sometime between December 2014 and February 2015, unauthorized parties were able to gain access to Anthem’s data storage system because Anthem failed to encrypt their customer’s sensitive personal information, including Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and employment information. Because Anthem failed to encrypt this information, its past and current customers now face the risk of identity theft, whereby thieves use ill-gotten information for illegal pursuits like opening a credit card or applying for a tax refund under the victim’s name.
Through this lawsuit, our firm and plaintiffs Manuel Vasquez and Bethany Noel seek redress for Anthem’s failure to institute proper safeguards to keep their customers’ data safe.
The Law Offices of Scott Glovsky is accepting additional Anthem customers who have been subject to this data breach. If you would like to learn more, please call (626) 243-5598 or visit our website at www.scottglovsky.com and fill out a free consultation request form.
