Crossgates Mall Store Part Of Credit Card Breech
It seems that every week there is another major credit card breech. Well, I'm sorry to break it to you, but there is yet another one to report. This one hit one of the largest retailers in the country with a store in Crossgates Mall. The cyber breech affects one of the largest stores in the country, Forever 21. The store says that credit card information may have been compromised beginning in March through October. Shoppers are encouraged to continue to check credit card statements. Cyber security experts say that you may not see fraud on bank statements until up to six months or more after the theft had occurred.
If your credit card contains a chip, you are less likely to be affected by the credit card breech. However, it doesn't mean it can't happen to you. Be diligent and keep checking your statements if you shopped in store at Forever 21.
