TJX Warns of Customer Data Breach
TJX is the latest bumbler to mishandle personal data for thousands of customers. According to the Boston Globe, customer credit and debit card information was stolen from its computer systems in mid-December.
So far TJX said it has identified "a limited number of credit card and debit card holders whose information was removed from its system." Also, TJX said "a relatively small number of customer names with related drivers' license numbers" was taken.
If you have done business with any of the TJX companies (T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, Bob's Stores, HomeGoods, and A.J. Wright in the United States) in the past couple of years, be sure to keep an eye out for any suspicious credit card, debit card, and credit report activity.
