TN: Gallatin Credit Card Fraud Linked To Computer Hacking

Here we go again – law enforcement decides that they can withhold information from consumers to protect a business.

 

The Secret Service said more than 100 cases of credit card fraud reported in Gallatin was the work of a criminal enterprise that hacked into a local business computer.

They are not releasing the name of business, but said that neither the business nor its employees were responsible for the fraud.

The Secret Service said the business was a targeted victim as were the citizens whose banking information was stolen.

Officials said measures have been taken to ensure the security of the computer and further credit card thefts related to this business are not expected.

Police advise citizens to continue to monitor their bank and credit card accounts frequently for unusual activity and contact their banking institution or credit card company immediately if any suspicious activity is noticed.
