Thousands of Customers of Rally’s Restaurants May Receive Cash Compensation Because of a Data Breach.

By: Joshua B. Swigart

California residents whose identities, personal data, and credit card information have been exposed by Rally’s Restaurants may receive justice and cash compensation, but sadly most of them are simply unaware of their rights.

On May 29, 2019, Rally’s made an announcement on its website that they became aware of a data security issue involving malware at certain Checkers and Rally’s locations.

According to the news release, the malware was designed to collect information stored on the magnetic stripe of payment cards, including cardholder name, payment card number, card verification code, and expiration date.

The list of affected restaurants and estimated windows of exposure includes:

Rally’s 4273
1406 W. 6th St.
Corona, CA 92882
Exposure Dates: 03/29/18 – 04/01/19

Rally’s 4088
105 N. Beach Blvd.
Anaheim, CA 92801
Exposure Dates: 10/09/18 – 04/08/19

Quick version: If you went to Rally’s and paid with a credit card, your sensitive data may have been exposed and you may be entitled to receive cash compensation. Applying for a claim evaluation is quick, free, and 100% confidential.

It is absolutely unacceptable that Rally’s failed to securely store sensitive information provided by its customers.

Some Victims of this Data Breach Are Worried That Having an Attorney Represent Them Will Require Out-Of-Pocket Expenses

Sadly, some victims will not take this opportunity to rectify their wrong because they are concerned about incurring out-of-pocket expenses when they apply for this service. This is not only wrong, but it’s in fact, quite the opposite!

Applying for a claim evaluation is free, confidential, and there is absolutely no cost.

Maybe What Happened To Me Wasn’t That Big Of A Deal

Some people affected by this data breach may downplay what happened to them and try to push it to the back of their mind. Not only does this cause emotional distress over time, but this is the very reason why companies have been getting away with their wrongdoings.

What even more shocking is that most people simply don’t know what happened to their private information and who has access to it. 

The information about you that may have been inappropriately accessed may include your name, payment card number, card verification code, and expiration date.  

When you see if you qualify right now, you take one step closer to demanding justice and also supporting other people who had their private information disclosed.
