MERRIFIELD, Va. (8/5/14)--Multiple U.S. financial institutions have reported a possible pattern of fraud that indicates nationwide sandwich chain Jimmy John's may be the latest retailer dealing with a breach involving customer credit card data, according to KrebsOnSecurity.
The Champaign, Ill.-based Jimmy John's told Krebs it is working with the proper authorities and investigating the situation.
The unauthorized card activity witnessed by various financial institutions contacted by Krebs is tied to so-called "card-present" fraud, where the fraudsters are able to create counterfeit copies of stolen credit cards.
If the breach is confirmed it would be added to a recent list that includes Target, Neiman Marcus, Sally Beauty Supply, Michaels and P.F. Chang's.
