What is the Blackhawk Prepaid Card Settlement About?
A $985,000 Class Action Settlement has been agreed upon with Blackhawk Network, a popular prepaid card service provider, after a data breach incident was reported publicly by Blackhawk in August of 2022, and notifications were originally sent to some affected class action members in October 2022. The Blackhawk prepaid card data breach originally occurred some time in June 16, 2022, and certain consumers have been sent class action notices regarding potential payouts in a nearly $1,000,000 class action settlement. Some of the personally identifiable information that may have been accessed by hackers as part of the data breach incident included:
• Prepaid Debit and Gift Card Information
• Card Numbers, Expiration Dates, CVV (3 digit) Card Codes
• Full Names
• Email Addresses
• User Telephone Numbers
The class action lawsuit alleges that Blackhawk had violated consumer privacy via contractual ol obtained obligations and inadvertently allowed for unauthorized access to customer prepaid payment card information with regard to their prepaid cards, which were managed via the website, MyPrepaidCenter.com. Blackhawk has accepted the terms of the class action settlement, but explicitly denies any wrongdoing associated with the allegations in the Blackhawk prepaid card data breach lawsuit.
