FTC Identifies Additional Group of ChoicePoint Identity Theft Victims Who May Qualify for Redress

Doyle, Barlow & Mazard PLLC

On April 24, the FTC mailed out an additional 1,500 claim forms for reimbursement to consumers who may have been victims of identity theft due to alleged security lapses at data broker ChoicePoint, Inc.

In December, 2006, the FTC mailed claim forms to 1,400 consumers.
In 2005, ChoicePoint, which compiles and sells personal information, announced that it had sold information about many consumers to people who turned out to be identity thieves. The FTC, after some investigation found this to be the case. In the settlement between the FTC and ChoicePoint the company was required to pay $5 million to be used to reimburse consumers for expenses due to identity theft caused by ChoicePoint’s security breach.
