Arts and crafts chain warns of possible data breach

Posted: Updated:

Arts and crafts store Michael's is warning their customers of possible security breach.

The store released a statement on Saturday stating there may have been some fraudulent activity on payment cards, both credit and debit, used at the stores.

According to the statement, "the Company is working closely with federal law enforcement and is conducting an investigation with the help of third-party data security experts."

"We are concerned there may have been a data security attack on Michael's that may have affected our customers' payment card information and we are taking aggressive action to determine the nature and scope of the issue," said Chuck Rubin, CEO.

"While we have not confirmed a compromise to our systems, we believe it is in the best interest of our customers to alert them to this potential issue so they can take steps to protect themselves, for example, by reviewing their payment card account statements for unauthorized charges."

Michael's will post information related to it's ongoing investigation online.
