This is an investigation into data breaches into the computer files of Express Scripts
Express Scripts boasts as being one of the nation's largest pharmacy benefit managers that administers the prescription drug benefits for approximately 50 million Americans.
Express Scripts experienced a massive data breach of customer records. The breach resulted in an extortion attempt by an unknown party who demanded Express Scripts pay millions or they would release the confidential data (including names, addresses and social security numbers) of Express Scripts customers onto the internet. As proof they possessed this information, the extortion letter included the names, addresses, social security numbers and prescription information for 75 Express Scripts customers. The FBI is currently investigating this matter, but to date no arrests have been made.
This data breach exposes Express Scripts customers to potential identity theft. Express Scripts is not currently offering any type of identity theft protection for clients concerned about identity theft, and instead offers identity theft restoration services only to those individuals who have suffered some type of identity theft. These types of data breaches by corporations are becoming commonplace. Recently a Countrywide employee stole and sold the confidential information on 2 million Countrywide customers. Breaches of confidential data can result in widespread identity theft and financial burden for those who are required to retain the services of an identity theft monitoring service. If you currently utilize Express Scripts, or have utilized Express Scripts in the past three years, and are concerned that your confidential information may have been breached, please contact us.
