TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody secured $8 million after hackers gained access to potentially millions of credit cards used at Wawa stores.

In a multistate action, Moody was joined by five other states. Florida will receive $1.1 million.

The hackers extracted payment information in mid-to-late 2019.

“Hackers will go to great lengths to steal personal information—often targeting businesses to access the data of millions of consumers. It is important that companies take reasonable measures to protect their customers from data breaches,” Moody said.

“Through a multistate action, we are securing millions of dollars and an agreement that Wawa will implement measures to better protect the sensitive information provided by its customers.” 

“The attorneys general of the following states, along with the District of Columbia, joined Attorney General Moody in the action: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Consumer Protection Division Assistant Attorneys General Patrice Malloy and Diane Oates represented Florida in the matter,” Moody’s office said.
