Forever 21 warns of possible credit card data breach

  • If you used a credit or debit card at Forever 21 between March and October your card's information may have been compromised

Forever 21 announced on Tuesday that customers who shopped in certain stores this year may have had their credit-card information stolen.

On Tuesday, the USA clothing retailer said that the company recently received a tip from a third-party that there "may have been unauthorized access to data from payment cards" at a number of Forever 21 outlets. Right now, Forever 21 doesn't know how far the breach extends, but an investigation is underway with the help of an unnamed "leading security and forensics firm".

Card transactions made at stores between March 2017 to October 2017 may have been affected.

Forever 21 operates more than 815 stores in 57 countries including the US, UK, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Japan, India, Latin America and Philippines. Because the investigation is continuing, complete findings are not available, and it is too early to provide further details on the investigation.

It advises customers to keep a close eye on their credit- and debit-card statements and notify their bank or card issuer if any unauthorized charges pop up on them. "We will continue to work to address this matter".

Until more specific detail is released by Forever 21 it's hard to pin down which retail locations are affected.
