A class action has been filed for customers of bankrupt computer retailer NCIX. When NCIX went bankrupt in late 2017, the company, its receiver and the auction house that sold the NCIX assets all failed to wipe clean the personal information of hundreds of thousands of NCIX customers contained on the company’s servers. This included names, addresses, email address and credit card details. The lists may have been sold to criminals who could exploit the credit card information and engage in identity theft of NCIX customers.
The RCMP, as well as both the federal and provincial privacy commissions, have launched investigations into the data breach.
The company, officially known as Netlink Computer Inc., had retail outlets in the Lower Mainland as well as Markham, Mississauga, Scarborough and Ottawa before filing for bankruptcy in 2017.
