FL: Auto part store investigating credit card fraud

WSVN reports:

An auto parts company is investigating potential incidents of credit card skimming at two of its South Florida stores.

Advance Auto Parts on Northwest 14th Street and 27th Avenue and the store on Northeast 119th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, are believed to have been affected, potentially compromising the credit card information of nearly 500 customers.

A spokesperson for the company releasing a statement: “Advance has no evidence that any customers’ payment cards have been misused as a result of this incident. Nevertheless, Advance has notified its payment card processors. As an additional precautionary measure, the company is sending letters to potentially affected customers whom it has been able to identify.”

So… how did they discover the skimmers? On their own or were they alerted by customers? And what are the odds that skimmers were installed but the data not misused?
