Lloyds Banking Group customers left without credit cards in wake of Ticketmaster breach
Tens of thousands of Lloyds Banking Group customers may have had their credit cards cancelled without notification following the Ticketmaster data breach, The Scotsman reports.
Around one per cent of Bank of Scotland, Lloyds Bank and Halifax credit card customers were affected by the breach earlier this year, the Group has said.
However, some affected customers have complained that their credit cards were subsequently cancelled without any warning or notification.
The Scotsman has spoken to customers who were left unable to pay for items because they did not know their card had been stopped.
A spokesperson for Lloyds Banking Group said: “We use a range of approaches to protect customers from the risk of fraud, including reissuing cards on occasion.
“In all cases, we take all possible steps to minimise time without a card.”
