Kmart Breach

Friday, June 2, 2017/Categories: Scams and Alerts

Community First Bank recently got notification from Kmart stores regarding a data breach that involved their payment systems.  Kmart has not yet reported how many of their 735 stores were affected or the timeframe of the breach. Based on the current investigation, no personal identifying information was compromised, however they do believe credit and debit card numbers were. There is no evidence that kmart.com or Sears customers were impacted. The notice that we received did state that all the Kmart stores were EMV “chip and pin” enabled making the ability to create counterfeit cards very limited.  

If you are wondering if your card has been compromised, please pay extra attention to your statements and account activity.  Contact us if you notice any unusual activity on your account.  Please contact your local branch if you have any additional questions.
