Class Action Lawsuit against Order Express

Mason LLP filed a Class Action Lawsuit against Order Express, Inc (“Order Express”) on December 22, 2022. Order Express, located in Illinois, provides specialized financial services like money transfers, cash checking, loan services, bill payments, and package deliveries. This company was the target of a data breach, which resulted in consumers’ Private Information being exfiltrated and now in the hands of cybercriminals.  Order Express sent out notice letters to people affected that their name and Social Security number, driver’s license or state identification card number, passports, and other information may have been accessed and stolen. Order Express failed to have adequate data security for its computer systems, so cyber criminals could easily access the Private Information of many people tied to Order Express. Cybercriminals had access to its files for over 6 weeks before the company realized there was suspicious activity on its network. Over 63,000 people have been affected by this breach. Data breaches make it easier for those affected to become victims of identity theft and fraud. They will have to spend time and money now and, in the future, to mitigate those risks that could have been avoided.
