Flagstar Data Breach Investigation

| Mar 25, 2021 | Firm News

Did you receive a recent data breach letter from Flagstar Bank relating to a data breach involving its customers’ sensitive data?

On March 15, 2021, Flagstar Bank began notifying its customers about a recent security incident which improperly disclosed customers’ “Social Security Number, First Name, Last Name,” and “Account Number.”  If you received a data breach letter from Flagstar Bank, please contact Markovits, Stock & DeMarco, LLC as soon as possible to understand your legal rights. Social Security Numbers are very sensitive information.

What happened?

Flagstar Bank announced in mid-March 2021 that certain of its customers’ data was exposed through working with Accellion, Inc.

Flagstar Bank has publicly represented that it is mailing notices to those customers impacted by the data breach.

How did this happen?

Details of the data breach are still being investigated. But, Flagstar Bank has admitted its customers’ data and information were improperly disclosed through a data breach involving Accellion, Inc.

What if I think my data may have been exposed or I received a notification from Flagstar Bank about the data breach?
