Investigations

Wawa Data Breach

security fraud class action lawsuit

If you used a payment card (credit or debit) when making a purchase at a Wawa convenience store anytime after March 4, 2019, your name, credit and/or debit information, and possibly other personal information may have been exposed.

In November, 2019, the credit card company VISA warned companies like Wawa that gas stations have been targeted by cybercriminals because many of them have been slow to adopt secure payment-processing technology. A month later, on December 19, 2019, Wawa announced that customers at all 850 Wawa stores, including those containing gas stations, were at risk of identity theft. Wawa allowed hackers to access customer information for nearly ten months, starting March 4, 2019 or earlier.

The privacy rights lawyers at Goldman Scarlato & Penny, P.C. are investigating claims on behalf of all persons whose payment card information was stolen through the Wawa data breach.

If your private information may have been compromised, please contact a GSP attorney to learn more about your rights.
