Wexler Boley & Elgersma LLP is currently investigating claims from victims of a recent online data breach involving the retailer Claire’s that allegedly resulted in the theft of countless customer’s credit card information. If you recently made purchases on Claire’s website and/or its sister website Icing,to discuss joining a potential Claire’s data breach lawsuit.
Claire’s is one of the nation’s largest accessories retailers, occupying significant physical retail locations as well as operating a popular online storefront. However, recent reports have revealed that the retail giant’s website was compromised, allowing hackers to gain access to secure customer data that included credit card details.
Security experts have advised any customer who made purchases on Claire’s website between the dates of April 30 and June 13 to contact their credit card companies and monitor their statements for fraudulent purchases.
An arms race of sorts between hackers and cybersecurity officers has always existed, but at a time when a majority of Americans depended upon Internet retailers in order to safely shop during a global pandemic, failing to ensure the security of online purchases is a negligent violation of their duty and a betrayal of customer trust.
