(FBCS) for an apparent failure to safeguard sensitive consumer information in a data breach that was detected on or around February 26, 2024. FBCS, a New Jersey-based collection agency, discovered that an unauthorized actor gained access to client data within FBCS’s systems. Through further investigation, it was determined that the breach took place between February 14 and February 26, 2024.

Financial Business and Consumer Solutions issued a notice to the Maine Attorney General concerning the data breach, indicating that 1,955,385 individuals may have been impacted by the data breach. FBCS has notified its corporate clients on April 4, 2024 of the breach, but waited until April 26, 2024 to distribute notice letters to other impacted consumers. Consumer information exposed in the breach may vary but can include names, Social security numbers, dates of birth, and account information.

The cybercriminals responsible for the breach may have already obtained and sold the compromised consumer information. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, medical and/or government services ordered in their name, or their information being posted on the dark web.
