If There is Credit Card Fraud, There Must Have Been a Breach
Craig Hoffman writes:
As we reported in December 2010, after an online merchant suffered chargeback losses of almost $12,000 on nine fraudulent orders, it sued the bank that issued the nine cards that were fraudulently used alleging that the most likely cause of the fraud was a data security breach at the bank that the bank ignored.
E-Shops Corp. v. U.S. Bank National Association worked its way through the courts, but the merchant found no joy. Read Hoffman’s discussion of the case and ruling on Data Privacy Monitor.
