Have you been an Arnold Clark customer in the last ten years

Have you been an Arnold Clark customer in the last ten years?

In 2022, cybercriminals breached Arnold Clark’s systems and stole the private data of some of its customers and employees. Much of this confidential data was subsequently uploaded to the dark web – posing significant risks to affected individuals. 

  • Have you purchased, sold, or hired a vehicle from Arnold Clark in the last 10 years? 
  • Have you had your car serviced or repaired by Arnold Clark in the last 10 years? 
  • Are you now, or have you been an employee of Arnold Clark within the last 10 years? 

If you answered yes to any of the above, you could be affected by the Arnold Clark data breach.  

Tens of thousands of people are thought to be at risk.  

The Arnold Clark data breach exposed sensitive and confidential information

The following personal data could be compromised in the Arnold Clark hack:  

  • Names 
  • Contact information  
  • Dates of birth 
  • Vehicle details 
  • ID documents (e.g. copies of passports and drivers’ licences) 
  • National insurance numbers 
  • Bank account details 

The fact that this information is in the hands of cybercriminals is extremely worrying.  

Victims of data breaches often experience fraud, blackmail, and identity theft. There have already been reports of criminals using data stolen in the hack to commit further offences, so affected Arnold Clark customers and employees must be vigilant.
