(Aug. 4, 2014) – Credit and debit cards at more than 30 P.F. Chang’s restaurants across the country may have been compromised, the restaurant revealed Monday.
The Indianapolis location is not among the affected stores, according to a list supplied by the company.
On June 10, 2014, the Secret Service contacted the chain about a possible data breach that put customers’ payment information at risk. The restaurant said the problem was contained by the next day but information shows it goes as far back as October 2013 at 33 stores.
P.F. Chang’s card processing system was compromised, and ID thieves may have stolen credit and debit card information, including card numbers and, in some cases, customers’ names and card expiration dates. Investigators haven’t been able to determine if the intruders were actually able to get away with specific information.
The company has set up a website to provide more information about the breach. It’s also offering free credit monitoring services for customers who may have been affected.
Here’s a list of the stores:
