How was data breached at DivideBuy?

In 2021, financial institution DivideBuy revealed it had suffered a cyber-attack which exposed the personal data of its customers. It sent an email to affected customers confirming that the criminals behind the attack might have access various pieces of sensitive information, including:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Email addresses
  • Dates of birth
  • Phone numbers
  • Associated aliases
  • Some credit report information of a few customers

DivideBuy stated explicitly that the compromised data in the breach did not include any bank account or credit card information.

Can I make a data breach claim against DivideBuy?

If you have been contacted by DivideBuy informing you that your data was part of the breach, or you have a strong reason to believe that your data has been affected, you might be able to make a claim for compensation. The company did send out an email to customers whose data was involved in the breach, so if you have had this communication you can start your claim.

Even though no financial information was revealed in this breach, victims can still claim compensation for any emotional distress they may have experienced as a result of the breach. Anyone who has had their data stolen in a breach should be aware of the risk of their data being used maliciously or fraudulently by hackers. There are steps you can take to reduce these risks as much as possible and to effectively protect yourself if you are targeted by criminals.

If you are a DivideBuy customer, you should be extra vigilant of any emails, phone calls, or communication from anyone who claims to represent the company. These could be ‘phishing’ attack attempts which aim to get further details from you than what was taken in the breach, such as your credit card information in order to commit further fraud.

Frequently Asked Questions

By bringing a data breach claim against DivideBuy you will not only be able to get the compensation you deserve, but you can also hold the company accountable for their actions. Hopefully, this will lead them to take the necessary steps to improve their security measures and do everything they can to make sure a breach like this can’t happen again.

In this case, DivideBuy worked with external specialists to make sure all data is secure. Also, as an extra precaution the company organised a 12-month subscription to TrueIdentity, an online monitoring service that notifies customers if there are any crucial changes to their TransUnion Credit Report.

If you believe your data has been part of the breach there are things you can do to help protect yourself from further fraud. This includes:

  • Change your passwords- this is one of the first and easiest steps you can take, both for the company that suffered the breach and anywhere else you might have used the same password. Preferably, you should use different passwords for every place your data is stored.
  • Keep your security software up to date- internet security software has become more focused on protecting people against a broader range of threats than just viruses. A lot of providers now include options to help protect customers against fraud, so it is essential to have up to date security software.

If you think you may have a valid DivideBuy data breach claim then get in touch with us and we will put you in touch with data breach experts who will make enquiries regarding your claim and confirm whether or not you have a case worth pursuing.

We can put you in touch with legal experts who are putting together a group claim whereby the thousands of customers can be part of a collective claim for DivideBuy data breach compensation. Even if the breach has not led to any direct financial losses to you, you are still entitled to claim compensation for distress caused by the DivideBuy data breach.
