Toledo Public School students seeing effects of massive data breach

  • We’re now seeing the first real signs of the fallout from that massive Toledo Public Schools’ data breach in October 2020.
  • Parents say they’re being notified about accounts trying to be opened in their kids’ names.
  • Here are some of the messages he’s received about his elementary schooler:
    • The first one was for denial for a credit card.
    • Another one happened when the child was denied for a car loan because it said the reason was because of his income ratio.
    • One of the last ones was to have fixed electric rates.
    • The family got a flier talking about the student’s Toledo Edison account and the gift card he could get by switching suppliers.
  • Parents need to be vigilant about what notices or letters they get and act quickly to shut anything down.
