Ford Money Data Breach 1 August 2023
On 1 August 2023 Ford Money's Head of Marketing sent two emails to Ford Money savings customers about the result of a competition. Unfortunately, those two emails shared the email addresses and names contained in those email addresses to all other participating current Ford Money customers. I checked for the relative that's now seriously distressed and concerned to find that a large number of those email addresses have been compromised and therefore computers are at risk of potentially running malware capturing email addresses for scammers and spammers. As such all those customers are now at high risk of receiving phishing attacks because the data breach links the email address to a person holding an active Ford Money savings account.
The relative is now so upset at Ford Money's dismissive attitude that I hope Martin Lewis can get the FCE Bank to actually help all those Ford Money customers to be safe and secure.
