WV: Bank says Va. company failed to prevent ID theft (update1)

Here’s another breach I hadn’t heard about. Interesting to see the bank suing the firm for negligence in security. Kyla Asbury reports:

The Bank of Charles Town is suing N/L Entertainment after it claims the company failed to prevent the theft of debit card and credit information of its customers at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in Winchester, Va.


The bank claims at least 232 purchases were made using Bank of Charles Town customers’ debit cards.

As a result of the defendant’s negligence, the Bank of Charles Town has been damaged in the amount of $29,919.74 plus interest, according to the suit.


Jefferson Circuit Court case number: 11-C-436

I’ve emailed the law firm requesting a copy of the complaint as this is one I want to follow.

Update 1: I found a September statement from Alamo concerning the breach. I also found a number of media stories from September that I’ll enter in DataLossDB for this incident.
