Michaels craft stores says tampered PIN pads could lead to credit card theft

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Officials with Michaels craft stores have released a list of locations where they say the PIN pads may have been tampered with allowing someone to obtain customers' credit card information.

Four of the stores are in the Charlotte area and a fifth store is in Matthews. Two other stores on the list are in the Raleigh area.

Michaels, which is based in Irving, TX, has 964 stores throughout the US.

Once the tampered PIN pads were discovered, the company says the devices were disabled and quarantined.

Furthermore, the company removed approximately 7,200 PIN pads comparable to the identified tampered PIN pads from its US stores, the company said in a statement released on Thursday.

The company plans to replace the PIN pads in all of its US stores within the next 15 days.

In the meantime, customers will have the option of having their credit and signature debit transactions processed on the store register.

Michaels has also notified the credit card companies for those accounts that may have been compromised.

The company urges its customers to check their accounts for any unauthorized transactions. If you think your account was used without your permission, contact your card issuer directly.

For additional information and updates, visit the Michaels website at www.Michaels.com. Customers may also call for 800-MICHAELS (642-4235) with questions.
