Each day, 2020 gets more interesting for the world of lead gen and digital fraud.The latest comes from the Department of Justice seizing control of WeLeakInfo.
If you’ve ever worried that your personal data has been compromised and sold to robo-dialers, worry no more! Now you can be sure it has!
WeLeakInfo illegally obtained the data from over 10,000 data breaches which contain a massive 12 billion indexed records. That more than one record for each person on the planet.
You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to understand that a nefarious marketer somewhere has obtained this data. It’s a matter of time before your phone rings because a bad actor has used your real data.
What this really means is that 2020 is going to see a number of massive class action TCPA lawsuits. Keep in mind, some telemarketers may not even know they obtained these leads by partners – but they’ll get sued anyway because of insufficient proof of consent. Time will tell just how bad this will be. In the mean time, get protected with SecureLead.
