If you were subject to the Cash Express Data Incident and previously received a notice letter informing you of the Data Incident, you could be eligible for a payment from a class action settlement.

You may be eligible to receive a payment from a proposed $850,000 non-reversionary class action settlement (the “Settlement Fund”).

A court has authorized this Website.

The class action lawsuit concerns a cyberattack on Cash Express’ network that occurred between January 29, 2022, and February 6, 2022 (the “Data Incident” or “Incident”) involving Cash Express, LLC (“Cash Express” or “Defendant”) in which it was determined that an unauthorized third party may have gained access to certain Cash Express files containing customers’ names, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, limited medical details, bank routing numbers, bank account numbers, or drivers’ license numbers (collectively referred to in this Settlement as “Private Information”). Cash Express denies any wrongdoing and denies that it has any liability but has agreed to settle the lawsuit on a class-wide basis.

To be eligible to make a claim, you must have received a notice letter of the Cash Express Data Incident that occurred between January 29, 2022 and February 6, 2022.

Eligible claimants under the Settlement Agreement will be eligible to receive one, two, and/or three or more of the following Settlement benefits:

  • Pro Rata Cash Payment: $150 cash payment from the Settlement Fund that will be increased or decreased pro rata depending on the amount remaining in the Settlement Fund after allocation of the Settlement Fund for reimbursement of documented Out-of-Pocket Losses, payments for lost time, attorneys’ fees and expenses, and Notice and Administrative Expenses.
  • Out-of-Pocket Losses: Reimbursement for the actual amount of unreimbursed Out-of-Pocket Losses or expenses up to $5,000, with supporting documentation of the monetary losses or expenses.
  • Lost Time: Compensation of up to $125 for time spent dealing with issues related to the Data Incident, including but not limited to reviewing your accounts, enrolling in credit protection services, or responding to fraud, identity theft, or other alleged misuse of your personal information that is fairly traceable to the Data Incident. Claims for lost time can be combined with claims for Out-of-Pocket loss but are subject to the $5,000 cap. All payments to Class Members for valid claims under the Settlement might be reduced pro rata, including those for Out-of-Pocket Losses and Lost Time, depending on the total number of valid claims submitted.
