Notice of Data Breach

What Happened?  On July 2, 2018, Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (“RRTS”) became aware that they were the subject of a phishing campaign attack and that several employees had inadvertently clicked on the phishing email.  RRTS immediately commenced an investigation into this activity to determine what happened and what information may be affected.  This investigation included working with third party forensic investigators to confirm the nature and scope of this incident.  Through the investigation, we determined that there was unauthorized access to several employee email accounts in April 2018.    It is believed that this access occurred after the employees received phishing emails.  On August 13, 2018, the results of the data mining of those accounts was completed and the affected population was identified, and notifications were delivered on August 31, 2018.  While Roadrunner’s efforts to locate postal addresses for the affected population are ongoing, to date, we have been unable to locate contact information for all affected individuals.

What Information Was Involved?  A review of the email accounts determined that information related to this incident varied from individual to individual. This information may have included individual names, addresses, Social Security numbers, financial account information, medical, insurance information as well as other types of identifying or sensitive information.

What is Roadrunner Doing?  The confidentiality, privacy and security of personal information is one of its highest priorities. Upon discovering that sensitive information was accessible, RRTS immediately commenced investigations to confirm the nature and scope of these incidents and identify what information may be affected. It also took steps to prevent further unauthorized access to the email accounts by changing passwords. While it has measures in place to protect information in its systems, it is reviewing its existing policies and procedures. As part of RRTS’ ongoing commitment to information security, RRTS has implemented additional measures to further protect IT systems.

Monitor Your Accounts

Credit Reports.  RRTS encourages you to remain vigilant against incidents of identity theft and fraud by reviewing your account statements and monitoring your free credit reports and explanation of benefits forms for suspicious activity. Under U.S. law, you are entitled to one free credit report annually from each of the three major credit reporting bureaus. To order your free credit report, visit or call, toll-free, 1-877-322-8228. You may also contact the three major credit bureaus listed below to request a free copy of your credit report.

Fraud Alerts.  At no charge, you can also have these credit bureaus place a “fraud alert” on your file that alerts creditors to take additional steps to verify your identity prior to granting credit in your name. Note, however, that because it tells creditors to follow certain procedures to protect you, it may also delay your ability to obtain credit while the agency verifies your identity. As soon as one credit bureau confirms your fraud alert, the others are notified to place fraud alerts on your file. Should you wish to place a fraud alert, or should you have any questions regarding your credit report, please contact any one of the agencies listed below:

P.O. Box 105069
Atlanta, GA 30348
P.O. Box 2002
Allen, TX 75013
P.O. Box 2000
Chester, PA 19106

Security Freeze.  You may also place a security freeze on your credit reports. A security freeze prohibits a credit bureau from releasing any information from a consumer’s credit report without the consumer’s written authorization. However, please be advised that placing a security freeze on your credit report may delay, interfere with or prevent the timely approval of any requests you make for new loans, credit mortgages, employment, housing or other services. If you have been a victim of identity theft and you provide the credit bureau with a valid police report, it cannot charge you to place, lift or remove a security freeze. In all other cases, a credit bureau may charge you a fee to place, temporarily lift or permanently remove a security freeze. Fees vary based on where you live, but commonly range from $3 to $15. You will need to place a security freeze separately with each of the three major credit bureaus listed above if you wish to place a freeze on all of your credit files. In order to request a security freeze, you will need to supply your full name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, current address, all addresses for up to five previous years, email address, a copy of your state identification card or driver’s license and a copy of a utility bill, bank or insurance statement or other statement proving residence. To find out more on how to place a security freeze, you can use the following contact information:
