VA: Large Credit Card Breach at Walmart in Fredericksburg

Greg Hambrick reports:

Fredericksburg City Police says a “large number” of debit/credit card users at the Central Park Walmart had their card information stolen, with dozens of reports of fraudulent cash withdrawls.

Walmart Global has confirmed an unspecified number of cards have been compromised.

It’s believed the suspects obtained the card information by placing overlay devices on credit card readers at checkout counters in March and April. The exact registers have not been determined, according to police.
