Customer Payments Breached at Maine Jewelry Store
DATA LOSS—U.S.February 16, 2011
Investigators have determined that hackers from outside the company accessed the payment card data of Day's Jewelers customers. MPBN reports that Maine credit unions were the first to notice the breach as customers discovered fraudulent charges to their accounts. The Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit investigation has determined that the breach did not affect the company's online customers and the hackers did not access customers' identities. Day's has apologized for the breach and is encouraging customers to review their payment card statements and report any questionable activity.
