These big corporations like Target and P.F. Chang’s don’t give a shit about your personal data. The CEO’s and top executives of these greedy fuck corporations care only about their bonuses, stock price and manipulated EPS. They invest stockholder money in buying back their own stock to elevate EPS and drive their compensation higher. They could be investing that cash in IT to insure security of your credit card data, but that would cut into profits.
We received a letter from our bank saying they needed to send us a new credit card due to a data breach at a merchant. Of course, they didn’t reveal the merchant. These banksters and corporate scumbags prefer to cover-up their ineptitude, incompetence, and recklessness. I had to spend over an hour changing all my automatic credit card payments because these scumbags can’t secure personal data. Fuck em.
Make these fuckers pay for their incompetence and greed. Stop eating at P.F. Chang’s and crush their profits. You never see a cat around a P.F. Chang’s. I wonder why?
P.F. Chang’s probes customer data theft
By Priya Anand
P.F. Chang’s China Bistro says an unknown number of credit and debit cards used at the chain’s restaurants have been part of a “security compromise,” and it doesn’t know which ones.
The Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Asian chain with more than 200 U.S. restaurants first learned of the breach on Tuesday from the U.S. Secret Service, it said in a statement posted online .
P.F. Chang’s has moved to a manual credit card imprinting system that it will use while it investigates the breach with the Secret Service and third-party forensics experts, CEO Rick Federico said in the statement. “Because we are still in the preliminary stages of our investigation, we encourage our guests to be vigilant about checking their credit card and bank statements,” he said.
The restaurant says it is working with credit card companies to identify the affected cards. This adds to a wave of data compromises kicked off by Target’s (NYSE:TGT) epic holiday season breach that affected up to 110 million customers. There have been more than 100 breaches discovered just this year, according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, with victims ranging from credit card company American Express (NYSE:AXP) to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, high-end retailer Neiman Marcus and the University of Maryland.
