We had to replace one of our cards because some site was comprimised somewhere. You have to love how, the bank will tell you to replace your card, but won't tell you who the dumbass was that got hacked. See that bit of usefull info would actually let you know to stay away from the sloppy vendor in future, but no, no info for you. A real 'shut the barndoor' post horse exit mentality.
Polo Ralph Lauren Customers' Data Stolen
: "Data apparently stolen from the popular clothing retailer Polo Ralph Lauren Corp. is forcing banks and credit card issuers to notify thousands of consumers that their credit-card information may have been exposed.
HSBC North America, a division of London-based HSBC Holdings PLC, has begun notifying holders of the HSBC-issued, General Motors-branded MasterCard that criminals may have obtained access to their credit card information and that the cards should be replaced.
HSBC spokesman Stephen E. Cohen said Thursday that 'we began doing it last week, and we are continuing.'
He said that about 180,000 GM-branded card holders are affected.
Neither Cohen nor spokesmen for MasterCard International would identify the retailer by name."
