MAPCO Facing More Lawsuits

Three class actions have been filed in Alabama against MAPCO for alleged security breaches. Pittman, Dutton & Hellums, P.C., filed one of those suits on behalf of a Tuscaloosa resident.

 Although the extent of the breach is unknown at this time, it is thought to be enormous. It may be that all 377 of MAPCO stores have been hit. The MAPCO family of stores include MAPCO Express®, MAPCO Mart®, Discount Food Mart™, Delta Express®, Fast Food & Fuel™.

 Another article has been published detailing the breach and the lawsuits. Tracy Kitten, the journalist covering the story, did an excellent job: http://www.bankinfosecurity.com/mapco-express-sued-over-malware-attack-a-5894

  The relevant dates of the security breach occurred between March 19-25, April 14-15 and April 20-21 of 2013. If you used a credit or debit card at any MAPCO location  and were injured by the MAPCO breach, please contact Chris Hellums at 1-866-515-8880 or by email at chrish@pittmandutton.
