Platinum discovered unauthorized access by a third-party to the email mailboxes of two employees on May 6, 2022 and promptly initiated our Cybersecurity and Privacy Incident Response Plans, which included engaging third-party forensic experts to conduct an investigation.

In addition, you should remain vigilant and carefully review your accounts for any suspicious activity. This is a best practice for all consumers. Included below are some additional helpful tips and steps you can take to help protect your information against the risks of fraud and identity theft.

    1. Data Security: Practice good data security by ensuring your computer has up-to-date anti-virus protection and updating your passwords regularly and ensuring they are complex and unique.
    2. Email Information: Pay particular attention to any emails asking for personal data, financial information, or government identifiers. Please do not give out your Social Security number or other personal data to unknown sources.
    3. Fraudulent Messages: Always remain alert to phishing scams. Phishing scams involve fraudulent (i.e., fake or “spoofed”) email messages that appear to come from legitimate sources and encourage you to (i) click on a link or open an attachment that will download malware onto your computer, or (ii) provide an unknown third party with certain types of information. For example, you may receive an email that directs you to input information, such as your username and password, into an unauthorized website. You may also receive an email from a source that appears to be legitimate but may be off in some way. An email may also be a phishing scam if it has certain anomalies, such as misspellings or awkward phrasing.
    4. Review Bank Statements: Review your credit and debit card account statements as soon as possible in order to determine if there are any discrepancies or unusual activity listed. You should remain vigilant and continue to monitor your statements for unusual activity going forward. If you see anything you do not understand or that looks suspicious, or if you suspect that any fraudulent transactions have taken place, you should call the bank that issued the credit or debit card immediately.
    5. Credit Reports: Carefully check your credit reports for accounts you did not open or for inquiries from creditors you did not initiate. If you see anything you do not understand, call the credit agency immediately.

If you would like to take additional steps to help protect your personal information, attached to this letter are helpful resources on how to do so, including recommendations from the Federal Trade Commission regarding identity theft protection and details on how to place a fraud alert or a security freeze on your credit file.
