MoneyMailer is a deals service provider that gathers deals from local businesses and distributes them to interested customers in the area. The company gathers a great deal of information to perform its business tasks, and it might have exposed some of that information in a recent data breach.
The MoneyMailer data breach occurred when a cyber attack was carried out on the company network, and the attacker gained entry into it. Once inside the files, the attacker was able to capture data about customers and businesses that could be harmful to the individuals exposed.
The MoneyMailer breach occurred between May 31, 2022, and June 2, 2022. It wasn't until after February 21, 2023, that all the details about the attack were fully understood and investigated. At that time, the company began sending out letters to its customers explaining the situation to them.
The MoneyMailer breach impacts customers that receive offers from the company, and companies that send in offers to the business. If you work with the company, you may have been impacted by the breach in some way. If you receive a letter about the issue, you qualify for identity theft protection services from the company. Use them to protect yourself.
We don't know how many files were on the MoneyMailer servers, but we know there were thousands of them. Many of the files didn't include personal or financial information about anyone, but some did. You may have been exposed by one or more of these files, and if you were, you'll receive a notice from the company about it.
