UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
If you were notified of a Data Incident involving Timios in 2021, you may be eligible to benefits from a settlement.
A federal court ordered this website. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.
A settlement has been reached in a Class Action lawsuit against Timios, Inc (“Timios”) arising out of a criminal cyberattack that occurred between July 19, 2021 and July 25, 2021 and involved third-party criminals attempting to gain unauthorized access to Timios’ network and encrypt some of Timios’ systems (“Data Incident”).
Plaintiffs allege that between July 19, 2021 and July 25, 2021, Timios was the target of a criminal cyberattack in which third-party criminals gained unauthorized access to Timios’ network and encrypted some of its systems (“Data Incident”). Plaintiffs further allege that, as a result of the Data Incident, the criminals gained access to Plaintiffs’ and “other consumers[‘]” personal information, including without limitation, “unredacted names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license or state-issued identification numbers, passport numbers, tax identification numbers, military identification numbers, financial account numbers, payment card numbers, and/or date of birth” (collectively, “PII”).
The Settlement Class includes all residents of the United States whose information may have been affected by the Data Incident. There is a separate Settlement Class for Settlement Class Members who were California residents at the time the Data Incident occurred. You should have received an email or a letter from the Claims Administrator if you are a member of the Settlement Class. That notification included a unique Class Member ID for you to verify your identity to receive the settlement benefits described in this notice.

The Settlement also provides up to $3,000 for proven monetary Extraordinary Expenses for Class Members who have incurred Extraordinary Expenses and who submit a valid Claim Form.
