The St. Cloud Forever 21 Might Have Had a Data Breach
If you shopped at Forever 21 and used a card between March and October of this year, you could be at risk. Right now the clothing chain is investigating what could potentially be a data breach that is tied to the card readers in the stores. The focus of the investigation is credit and debit card transactions that happened between March 2017 and October 2017. At the moment they don't know what may or may not have been accessed or stolen, but they are advising that anyone who used a card their in that time period keep an eye on their accounts. If you do notice strange activity on your account, make sure you notify your bank immediately.
I have definitely bought my fair share from this store in that time period so I will be keeping a close eye on my bank statements. Also, it might be a good idea to do holiday shopping with cash this year!
