If you've received a notice from Needleman Management or suspect your personal information may have been compromised in their recent data breach, it's crucial to understand that you may be eligible for compensation. Lawyers are ready to help guide you through the process and ensure your rights are protected.

What Happened?

Between October 4, 2023, and October 19, 2023, Needleman Management experienced a data security incident that potentially exposed personal information, including names, addresses, and Social Security numbers. While the company has not found evidence of misuse of this information, the breach raises significant concerns about the potential for identity theft and fraud.

Your Rights and Next Steps

Understanding Your Rights: Under Massachusetts law, you have the right to obtain any police report filed concerning this incident. If you're a victim of identity theft, you can file a police report and get a copy. You also have the right to place a security freeze on your credit reports for free, preventing credit agencies from releasing your information without your authorization.

Immediate Steps to Take: - Enroll in Complimentary Credit Monitoring: Needleman Management has provided a code for free TransUnion credit monitoring for 18 months. Enroll within 90 days from the date of the notice letter. - Place a Security Freeze: Contact Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion to freeze your credit reports. This action will not affect your credit score but can help prevent unauthorized credit activity. - Implement an IRS IP PIN: To protect against tax-related identity theft, consider getting an Identity Protection PIN from the IRS. This unique number helps verify your identity when filing tax returns. - Stay Vigilant: Regularly monitor your financial accounts and credit reports for any suspicious activity. Report any suspected misuse of your personal information immediately.

For detailed instructions on these steps, including contact information for credit bureaus and how to obtain an IP PIN, please refer to the Notice to Consumers provided by Needleman Management.
