Costco discloses payment card breach at store

CSA Chain Store Age

Costco Wholesale Corp. has been victimized by criminals using what might be considered “legacy” hacking technology.

The Issaquah, Wash.-based warehouse club retailer is using a form letter to notify select customers that their payment card information may have been compromised. The letter, sent from Costco VP of Midwest region operations Kevin Green informs recipients that a payment card skimming device was discovered during “regular pin pad inspections conducted by Costco personnel” at a store they recently  visited.
