What Happened?

On March 26, 2024, Reyes Automotive Group II, LLC reported a significant data breach affecting 1,660 individuals in Texas. This breach involved unauthorized access to sensitive personal information. The exposed data includes names, addresses, Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, and other government-issued ID numbers. This incident has raised concerns about the potential misuse of this information and the overall security measures in place at the company.

Immediate Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you believe you might be one of the individuals affected by this breach, it is crucial to act swiftly to protect your identity and personal information. Here are some steps you can take:

  1. Monitor Your Accounts: Regularly check your bank statements, credit card statements, and any other financial accounts for unauthorized transactions. If you notice anything suspicious, report it immediately to your financial institution.
  2. Credit Reports: Obtain a free credit report from each of the three major credit reporting agencies—Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Review these reports for any accounts or activities you do not recognize.
  3. Fraud Alerts: Consider placing a fraud alert on your credit reports. This action warns creditors that you may be a victim of identity theft and they should verify anyone seeking credit in your name.
  4. Credit Freeze: A more secure option is to place a credit freeze on your reports. This prevents creditors from accessing your credit report entirely, which makes it more difficult for identity thieves to open accounts in your name.
  5. Stay Informed: Keep abreast of any updates from Reyes Automotive Group II, LLC regarding the breach and any support they may offer to affected individuals.
