Over 200 Minnesota Caribou Coffee Locations Hit by Data Breach
Caribou Coffee recently released a notice saying that over 200 Minnesota stores, along with stores in Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Florida, Missouri, and North Carolina, were hit with a data breach.
They detected the breach on November 28th and Caribou said that "there is a possibility that your name and credit card information, including card number, expiration date, and card security code may have been accessed as a result of this unauthorized activity."
Caribou suggests that if you've made a purchase at one of the affected locations between August 28th, 2018 and December 3rd, 2018 that you should be checking your bank statements to make sure there aren't any suspicious charges.
Caribou says they "are confident that the breach has been contained."
You can look at all of the locations affected by this data breach HERE.
I'm a huge fan of Caribou (it's my go-to coffee chain!) and so I've for sure been to at least one of these locations in that time period. Dang it!
