An actor is negligent per se if she violates a statute that is designed to protect against the type of accident or harm caused by her conduct, and the plaintiff is someone the statute is designed to protect.
An express contract is an agreement with clearly stated terms to which both parties are bound at the time it is formed. This contract may be either oral or written. It must demonstrate an offer and unconditional acceptance, and be expressed in an easy-to-understand manner.
Negligence is defined as a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. The behavior usually consists of actions, but can also consist of omissions when there is some duty to act (e.g., a duty to help victims of one's previous conduct).
Mr. Shapiro claims AT&T employees took bribes from hackers and gave them control of his mobile account 4 times over the course of one year. Mr. Shapiro also claims that the hackers then used their control over his mobile account to take control of his personal and digital finance accounts and steal more than $1.9 million from him.
Mr. Terpin claims that AT&T allowed an illegal sim swap to occur after an imposter posing as Mr. Terpin obtained Mr. Terpin’s telephone number from an insider cooperating with the hacker without the AT&T store employee requiring him to present valid identification or to give Mr. Terpin’s required password.
Mr. Williams claims that AT&T employees gave hackers control over his mobile account and phone number through an unauthorized SIM swap, and because of that, the hackers were able to take control of his personal and financial accounts, steal his cryptocurrency, and destroy his business, all resulting in the loss of Mr. Williams’ $2 million investment.
Mr. James Chen claims that AT&T employees gave unauthorized access to hackers in a sim swap which allowed the hackers to steal $764,168.00 from his bank accounts. The hackers then created a new cryptocurrency account, purchased cryptocurrency using the stolen money for themselves.
Ms. McCants claims that AT&T agents were paid to override security measures on her mobile account and allowed an unauthorized user to access her confidential account information. The information accessed then lead to Ms. McCants attack.

A portion of your donation may be used to provide funding for lawsuits against the carriers and criminals. Because the carriers’ Terms of Service do not allow for legal class actions, each victim must take action individually, which may benefit victim individual.

However, our intention is that our collective efforts through your support will compel the carriers to fix the problem.
