T.J. Maxx Gets Class Actioned For Credit Card Breach

A class action lawsuit was filed yesterday against TJ Maxx for allowing millions of customer’s credit cards to be stolen in a Jan. 17. security breach.

Stern Shapiro Weissberg & Garin LLP, and another firm are suing for credit-monitoring services as well as any damages incurred.

Credit cards stolen in the breach have been used in Florida, Georgia, and Louisana, as well as Hong Kong and Sweden. Driver’s license data was stolen as well.

Hundreds of thousands of credit cards have been reissued due to the theft.

If you shopped at TJ Maxx mid-May to December 2006, or at all in 2003, check your statements carefully and report if purchases seem amiss. — BEN POPKEN
