Jimmy John stores notify customers about Credit and Debit Card Security Breach
On Wednesday, Jimmy John stores announced that customers who used their cards at 18 of the Jimmy John's shops in Michigan are likely to be the ones whose credit and debit card data could have been stolen in a possible security breach that happened this summer.
According to a statement on the website, "It appears customers' credit and debit card data was compromised after an intruder stole log-in credentials from a Jimmy John's point-of-sale vendor and used these stolen credentials to remotely access the point-of-sale systems at some corporate and franchised locations between June 16 and September 5".
Officials first came to know about this situation on July 30th. All the cards in question in this situation appear to have been swiped at the stores and not entered manually or online. The store notified its customers in this context.
Two of the affected stores are in Springfield and another is in Champaign, on the University of Illinois campus. Doing the needful in this context, the company has taken all the right measures to rectify the situation and prevent similar incidents in the future.
The company has installed encrypted swipe machines. Along with this, Jimmy John stores have implemented system enhancements and they have also reviewed their policies and procedures for its third party vendors.
Jimmy John has been encouraging all its customers to monitor their credit and debit card accounts, and to immediately notify their bank if they notice any suspicious activity.
