R&B Corporation of Virginia does business under the name of Credit Control Corporation (CCC). This company handles debt collections and other cash flow relief services for many different creditors and corporations. Now, some of its consumer files have experienced a security breach, opening many people up to possible identity theft and other financial issues.
Overview of the R&B/CCC Data Breach
R&B Corporation of Virginia d/b/a Credit Control Corporation filed official notice of a data breach on May 15, 2023. Reports indicate that an unauthorized party copied information from certain files in the corporation’s computer network between March 2, 2023, and March 7, 2023. An investigation revealed that some copied information included consumer names and Social Security numbers.
While CCC isolated and secured affected networks, it was too late to avoid all suspicious and illegal activity. The company identified which consumers were subject to data exposure and issued notices of the data breach to affected individuals on May 15, 2023.
When Social Security numbers are part of a data breach, individuals become vulnerable to a range of fraudulent activities and financial harm. Cybercriminals can use these numbers to open credit accounts, apply for loans, or make unauthorized purchases, all under the victim’s name. This can lead to substantial financial losses and damage to credit scores.
Additionally, exposed Social Security numbers enable identity theft, where perpetrators may file fraudulent tax returns or gain unauthorized access to sensitive accounts. Victims often face a lengthy and stressful process of rectifying these issues, including disputing unauthorized charges, freezing accounts, and dealing with credit bureaus.
Moreover, the emotional distress and anxiety resulting from such a breach can be significant. Prompt action after a breach can mitigate these risks and give you peace of mind following the exposure of your sensitive information.
