TAMPA BAY – If you’re a SunTrust Bank customer, your personal information may be at risk.
News Channel 8 has learned two Morgan and Morgan attorneys in Tampa are proceeding with a class action lawsuit connected to as many as 1.5 million customers.
The punitive class action was filed last Friday and alleges if SunTrust had taken security more seriously, the theft of customer data could have been prevented.
Records show that back on April 20th, a former bank employee in Atlanta, Georgia gained access to the names, addresses, phone numbers and account balances of more than one million accounts.
SunTrust says it has reason to believe this employee wasn’t acting alone and may have printed the information and possibly sold it to a third party.
