Data breach: Chick-fil-A customers may be at risk

Chick-Fil-A is under investigation for customer hacking.

The fast food chain recently received reports of suspicious activity involving customers' payment cards.

On December 30th, several financial institutions admit to tracing a pattern of credit card fraud back to Chick-fil-A restaurants.

In a statement, the company says they are working with IT security firms, law enforcement and payment companies to find a solution:

"Chick-fil-A recently received reports of potential unusual activity involving payment cards used at a few of our restaurants. We take our obligation to protect customer information seriously, and we are working with leading IT security firms, law enforcement and our payment industry contacts to determine all of the facts.  

We want to assure our customers we are working hard to investigate these events and will share additional facts as we are able to do so. If the investigation reveals that a breach has occurred, customers will not be liable for any fraudulent charges to their accounts --- any fraudulent charges will be the responsibility of either Chick-fil-A or the bank that issued the card.  If our customers are impacted, we will arrange for free identity protection services, including credit monitoring.
