Debit card info stolen at Michael’s Craft stores nationwide

“The crafts-store chain identified 90 keypads in 80 stores that were compromised in Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Massachusetts, Maryland, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Virginia and Washington.”
“Under federal law, debit card users have a limited time to report a loss or unauthorized use. Even if reported within two days, a customer can be liable for up to $50 of the fraud amount. If reported between two and 60 days, the customer can be liable for up to $500. If reported later, a customer is in danger of losing all the money.”
In the past couple of years, Hancock Fabrics and Aldi grocery stores were also hit.
