News of another big data breach are just coming in now. I hope this will not be too bad but Goodwill are in the USA, Canada and 14 other countries so it has a lot of potential to be fairly big.

"Heads up, bargain shoppers: Financial institutions across the country report that they are tracking what appears to be a series of credit card breaches involving Goodwill locations nationwide. For its part, Goodwill Industries International Inc. says it is working with federal authorities on an investigation into these reports.

Headquartered in Rockville, Md., Goodwill Industries International, Inc. is a network of 165 independent agencies in the United States and Canada with a presence in 14 other countries. The organizations sell donated clothing and household items, and use the proceeds to fund job training programs, employment placement services and other community-based initiatives.

According to sources in the financial industry, multiple locations of Goodwill Industries stores have been identified as a likely point of compromise for an unknown number of credit and debit cards."

You mean "Cleveland" 90% rule, LOL!

 

Goodwill in Florida has also been hit very bad. There is one not far from me, they are about to stop taking credit cards, and accept cash only if they can.
