Eat Chinese lately? Your credit card information may be in jeopardy
SEATTLE — P.F. Chang’s China Bistro believes it may have been hit by credit hackers, and the personal information of diners at 33 locations across the U.S. may be at risk–including here in Washington.
The Bellevue Square and Lynnwood restaurants are on the list of targeted restaurants. The Westlake Center location is not listed.
The restaurant believes identity thieves targeted the local spots between April and June of this year.
According to P.F. Chang’s, hackers may have obtained credit and debit cards and possibly the expiration date and cardholder names.
The restaurant chain did not disclose how many cards may be at risk, and it does not have evidence of specific cards that may be compromised.
P.F. Chang’s will not notify customers if their information was stolen. The restaurant says diners should watch their bank statements carefully and cancel any cards they may have used.
