Credit Card Breach Reported At Some Forever 21 Stores

Forever 21 warns of potential data breach that impacted payment card transactions

Fast fashion retailer Forever 21 said Tuesday it was investigating possible "unauthorized access" to data from credit cards, as it advised shoppers to monitor their payment card statements.

"Because of the encryption and tokenization solutions that Forever 21 implemented in 2015, it appears that only certain point-of-sale devices in some Forever 21 stores were affected when the encryption on those devices was not operating", the statement says.

The company said its investigation is focused on card transactions in Forever 21 stores from March through October.

The number of people potentially affected was not yet available, but Forever 21 said in a press release that its investigation is ongoing.

La Procuraduría Capitalina presentó un video del 20 de septiembre, grabado en la colonia Industrial en la delegación Gustavo A. Madero, el día que ocurrió el crimen, donde se observa cuando la pareja salió a comprar una pizza y cuando regresan.

"We regret that this incident occurred and apologize for any inconvenience".

Forever 21 joins one of dozens of companies that have been hit by data hacks this year alone: Arby's, Saks Fifth Avenue, Chipotle, Verizon, Equifax, and Whole Foods Market are among 37 companies that have reported a data breach in 2017, according to Identity Force, a personal information security and protection service company that tracks data breaches.

If you see an unauthorized charge on your payment card statements, you should immediately notify your bank. Payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for such charges.
