DENVER – Attorney General John Suthers today advised LexisNexis customers of a security breach involving the company’s subsidiary, Seisint. The incident involved individuals who gained access to personal information of legitimate Seisint customers.
“The recent incidents of security breaches in Colorado is alarming,” said Suthers. “I urge companies to take extra precautions to protect Colorado consumers from becoming prey to identity thieves.”
In a letter to the Attorney General, LexisNexis notes that it is contacting the 32,000 customers impacted around the country. According to LexisNexis, 263 customers in Colorado have been affected. Last week, Attorney General Suthers sent a letter to DSW Shoe Warehouse emphasizing his concerns on a similar identity theft case and called on DSW to immediately contact each Colorado consumer.
Colorado consumers or businesses that have reason to believe their information may have been jeopardized should contact the Attorney General’s consumer protection line at 1-800-222-4444 and review the procedures outlined on the Attorney General’s Web site: www.coloradoattorneygeneral.gov.
