If you shopped in a bebe store between Nov. 8-26, 2014 and swiped your credit or debit card, you may have been the victim of a data breach.
bebe stores, inc. announced the breach to customers on its website. “Based on our investigation to date, we believe the attack was focused on and limited to data from payment cards swiped in our U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands stores,” the statement reads.
Here’s what the thieves got: cardholder name, account number, expiration date, and verification code.
If you made an online or mobile purchase, your data was not taken.
"Our relationship with our customers is of the highest importance," said Jim Wiggett, Chief Executive Officer, in the online statement. "We moved quickly to block this attack and have taken steps to further enhance our security measures."
bebe recommends checking your statements immediately and often for purchases that you didn’t make.
The company is also offering free credit monitoring services for one year for customers who used payment cards in stores during the breach.
