GameStop – breach of customer credit card info

Post by Saul » Sun Apr 30, 2017 7:15 pm

If you have been shopping online at GameStop recently you may want to gives serious thought to changing your credit card. It would appear that there has very likely been a breach of GameStop security in which customer details including credit card information has been stolen. GameStop have issued the following statement:

We regret any concern this situation may cause for our customers. GameStop would like to remind its customers that it is always advisable to monitor payment card account statements for unauthorized charges. If you identify such a charge, report it immediately to the bank that issued the card, because payment card network rules generally state that cardholders are not responsible for unauthorized charges that are timely reported.
