You May Be Entitled to Compensation

If you've recently learned about the Organized Living data breach and suspect your personal information may have been compromised, it's important to understand that you have rights and may be entitled to compensation. Lawyers are ready to help guide you through this process and ensure your rights are protected.

What Happened?

On March 13, 2024, Organized Living, a leader in home storage and organization products, fell victim to a phishing ransomware attack, resulting in the exposure of sensitive employment data. The compromised information includes names, contact details, social security numbers, dates of birth, financial data, health insurance policy information, and employment dates. Organized Living has since taken steps to secure its network and prevent future breaches. For more details, you can review the full Notice to Consumers on the Massachusetts Attorney General's website.

Your Rights and Next Steps

As a potentially affected individual, you have the right to take action to protect your identity and personal information. Here are some detailed steps you should consider:

  • Review Your Accounts: Regularly check your bank statements and credit reports for any unauthorized activity. You are entitled to a free credit report from each of the three major credit bureaus annually, which can be obtained at or by calling 1-877-322-8228.

  • Report Suspicious Activity: If you notice any discrepancies, immediately report them to your financial institution and the appropriate credit bureau: Equifax, Experian, or TransUnion.

  • Consider a Fraud Alert or Credit Freeze: Placing a fraud alert on your credit files makes it harder for someone to open new accounts in your name. A credit freeze, on the other hand, locks down your credit entirely.

  • Stay Informed: Keep abreast of any updates from Organized Living and monitor your credit reports and account statements for the next 12 to 24 months.

  • Contact Lawyers: If you have questions or need assistance, lawyers are ready to help you understand your rights and guide you through the necessary steps to protect your identity.

  • Documentation: Keep a file with all related documents, including any correspondence with credit bureaus, financial institutions, and law enforcement.
