Let the class action suit begin

It's about time. BNY mellon is now facing a class action lawsuit for "losing" a box of unencrypted backup tapes containing PII data for millions of people. The breachblog has information on this rediculous incident. I sincerely hope that BNY mellon gets nailed on this one. Their actions - negligent, fraudulent, reckless, wrongful, and unlawful is something I just don't get. I'm sure there are a whole host of "reasons" (re: excuses) for this.

The 62 page class action complaint can be found here.

If you received a notice from BNY mellon, check your credit reports and contact the law office listed at the breachblog link above.
