Mailchimp Trezor Wallet Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit Overview: 

  • Who: Alan Levinson filed a class action lawsuit against Intuit, Inc. and Rocket Science Group, LLC d/b/a Mailchimp. 
  • Why: Levinson claims Intuit and Mailchimp allowed a data breach to occur against Trezor crypto wallet holders that resulted in millions of dollars worth of stolen cryptocurrency. 
  • Where: The class action lawsuit was filed in California federal court. 

Intuit and its subsidiary Mailchimp failed to prevent a data breach earlier this month that resulted in millions of dollars of stolen cryptocurrency, a new class action lawsuit alleges. 

Plaintiff Alan Levinson claims Intuit and Mailchimp failed to ensure its data systems were protected, prevent the breach from happening or disclose it in a timely manner. 

Levinson claims unknown hackers were able to obtain the customer list of users of Trezor, which sells an offline hardware cryptocurrency wallet, due to the info being “negligently stored” by Mailchimp. 

The hackers used the information to send out a phishing email purported to be from Trezor that stated their “data had been compromised” and that their cryptocurrency was “at risk of being stolen,” according to the Mailchimp class action. 

Levinson claims users were directed to a fake Trezor website where they were “prompted to download a new version of the Trezor Suite desktop application,” which gave the hackers access to their account information. 

Mailchimp Failed To Secure Data Of Trezor Crypto Wallet Holders, According to Class Action 

“Accordingly, the unknown hackers were able to pilfer Trezor platform users’ cryptocurrency from the compromised accounts, resulting in millions of dollars of losses,” the Mailchimp class action states. 

Levinson, who says that approximately $82,000 worth of cryptocurrency was stolen from his account by the unknown hackers, blames Mailchimp and Intuit for allowing the data breach to occur. 

“The hackers gained the email addresses of the Trezor platform users by compromising Trezor’s services providers, defendants Mailchimp and Intuit,” the Mailchimp class action states. 

Levinson claims Intuit and Mailchimp are guilty of negligence, unjust enrichment and breach of third party beneficiary contract. He is demanding a jury trial and requesting declaratory relief along with actual, compensatory, and punitive damages for himself and all class members. 

Levinson wants to represent a nationwide class of consumers who lost cryptocurrency after receiving an unauthorized email purported to be from Trezor informing them of a “data security incident.

A class action lawsuit was filed against Shopify earlier this month by a group of Ledger SAS crypto wallet holders who claim the company failed to prevent their private info from falling into the hands of hackers during a 2020 data breach.
