A: In Texas, if you believe your personal information was mishandled or inadequately protected by a company, you may have grounds to sue. However, proving negligence or a breach of duty on the part of Careerbuilder or any similar platform would be crucial. Additionally, you'd have to show that the harm you suffered was a direct result of their actions or lack thereof. Given the vast nature of the internet and the potential for scammers to access information from various sources, establishing a direct link might be challenging. For personalized legal advice tailored to your unique circumstances, it's advisable to consult with an attorney.
