On Feb. 12, 2020 Cincinnati Business Journal Steve Watkins reported “Fifth Third Bank Customers Hit By Data Breach”. The bank admitted that a few of their employees stole customer information. The bank will provide identity theft monitoring to affected customers at no cost.
“Fifth Third said its internal investigation uncovered the theft of bank information and led it to refer the matter to law enforcement. Legal authorities are still conducting an investigation into the theft. Fifth Third is cooperating with the authorities “and we look forward to seeing justice served,” it said.”
There is no confirmation that the suspects are from California, worked for a local phone company or fans of a local baseball team.
