Four Massachusetts Stores Affected In Michaels Debit Card Breach

BRAINTREE, MA/IRVING, TX (CBS) – A popular craft store is reeling from a widespread debit card breach.

Michaels says pin pads at checkout line terminals were tampered with at stores in 20 states, including its stores in Braintree, Burlington, Danvers, and Everett.

Some customers reported having money stolen directly from their bank accounts.

The company has since removed thousands of pin pads with plans of replacing them.

If you were a victim, chances are you already know about it, but it’s always a good idea to look at your statements just in case.
