Another Data Breach Lawsuit for Lakeview Loan Servicing

A December 2021 breach of Lakeview Loan Servicing’s customer data has led to another proposed class action against the company in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina. The breach affected the personal information of more than 2.5 million customers.

Plaintiffs Anthony Teresa Oglesby allege that their names, addresses, loan numbers, and Social Security numbers were compromised as a result of the breach. The complaint includes allegations that Lakeview failed to secure customers’ personal information and failed to notify the affected individuals until three months after the incident. Plaintiffs claim that the affected customers have suffered stress, theft of their personal information, and incurred costs related to identity theft protection services. The causes of action include negligence and violation of the South Carolina Unfair Trade Practices Act.

This suit comes after three other lawsuits were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida by other affected customers as a result of this data breach.

Plaintiffs seek compensatory damages, actual damages, statutory damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs.
