GavelTwo women from Texas who were among the estimated 330,000 people whose personal information was accessed after a recent data breach at the IRS are suing the service and hoping others who were affected will join them, according to Bloomberg. The data breach allowed the perpetrators to file enough tax returns to get over $50 million in fraudulent refunds, said Bloomberg, and for this the two women, both attorneys, are blaming the IRS for failing to keep the information safe. They have said they will represent anyone whose data was illegally accessed in the breach, and are also seeking monetary damages for their own troubles from the incident, said Bloomberg.
