Back in March of 2019, we reported on the Creation Entertainment data breach hack, when a number of Creation Entertainment customers reported receiving alerts from their credit card companies or seeing unrecognized charges on their credit cards.
If you are unfamiliar with Creation Entertainment, they are the company behind conventions featuring actors from Supernatural, Star Trek, Stranger Things, The Vampire Diaries, and other popular shows, creating opportunities for fans to meet their favorite fandom stars.
On November 10, 2020, Chimicles Schwartz Kriner & Donaldson-Smith LLP (“CSK&D”), along with co-counsel, filed a Motion for Preliminary Approval of Class Action Settlement in a class-action lawsuit against Creation Entertainment (“Creation”) brought on the behalf of all consumers who made purchases through Creation’s website, and whose credit/debit card information was potentially accessed and captured from Creation’s systems by unauthorized users as part of a data breach.
“The proposed settlement would allow those affected by the data breach one of two types of payments: a Basic Settlement Payment of up to $200 regardless of whether any unauthorized charges or fraud were experienced on a credit/debit card used to make purchases from Creation, or Extraordinary Reimbursement Payment of up to $10,000 for anyone who experienced fraud as a result of the breach and incurred specific damages more likely than not caused by the data breach.”
