Today is April 3, 2013. We shop at the LSL Schnucks and have been watching news stories about debit/credit cards being hacked. We especially noted a story on a lady who shopped there on Saturday night, March 30, from LSL who began to experience fraud charges.
Last night at a local LSL retaurant, my spouse's debit card was declined, so we tried mine. Both declined.
Today our bank said we were hacked.
Our debit card number was used at a Dominick's store for $209. The man in the cubicle next to us was at the very same time being told his debit was used at a Dominick's, a Home Depot and a Bed Bath & Beyond.
We were talking about this at a local business and the worker there said it happened to her, too.
This problem seems widespread and under publicized.
It CAN happen to you. Schnucks says the problem is contained, but we were hacked several days after they said this. Or our card data was stolen befoe that and is just now being tested. This issue and the losses could go on for months.
We Love our LSL Schnucks but will use cash or checks.
