If You Shopped At These Stores, Your Data Might Have Been Stolen
In a world where most of us are using credit cards to make purchases, the chance of your data being stolen is getting higher and higher everytime you shop!
Several stores recently announced that their records were hacked into and that some personal data of customers could have been stolen.
If you made a purchase using a credit card at any of these stores, your data could have been compromised according to Business Insider.
1. Saks Fifth Avenue. They announced this week that up to five million credit card numbers might have been stolen. And the same company owns Lord & Taylor too.
2. Panera Bread. They also confirmed this week that a flaw in their website might have left 37 million people's information open to hackers.
3. Whole Foods. If you only bought groceries, you don't have to worry. But last summer, they said the payment system used in their in-store cafes got hacked.
4. Forever 21. Anyone who shopped there between March and October of last year could have been hacked. They announced it back in November.
5. Kmart. They confirmed last June that customers' credit card info got stolen.
6. Sonic. Five million credit card numbers might have been stolen last year, across more than 3,600 locations.
7. GameStop. Someone stole names, addresses, and credit card numbers from customers who shopped there between August 2016 and February 2017.
If you think that your data and information might have been compromised, you need to contact your credit card company as soon as possible!
