TN: Identity Theft Hits Customers of Mid-South Deli
Natasha Chen reports:
Some customers who have recently purchased items at Jason’s Deli found suspicious activity on their credit or debit accounts, some of which is occurring out of state.[…]
The Memphis Police Department said that they have an open investigation right now, with three victims reporting unauthorized charges on their credit/debit card accounts.
A spokesperson stated, “The last place all three victims reported using their credit cards was at Jason’s Deli.”
One of the partners of Jason’s Deli and the general manager of the 1199 Ridgeway Rd. location declined to speak on camera. But the partner, Kent Holt, gave News Channel 3 this statement:
“On Friday Aug. 20th it was brought to my attention that there were some credit cards that have been compromised. The IT department was notified, and reacted immediately, and for extra measure added another layer of security. If we find any wrongdoing we will report it to the appropriate authorities and cooperate thoroughly with their investigation. At this time we have no further comment pending an ongoing investigation.”
