Classic Football Shirts data breach
In July 2021, retro sportswear firm, Classic Football Shirts, announced that their data had been accessed following a cyber-security attack.
In a statement the company said that customers had received an email which was part of a ‘phishing’ scam and that customer data relating to historic orders had been compromised. The scam email, which claimed to offer cashback, attempts to get customer card details by asking readers to click a link.
The personal data compromised includes customer email addresses and shipping addresses. Classic Football Shirts has stated that “the compromised information did not include any password details nor any payment information.”
