With a small number of customers reporting problems, it might not be a database breach. An employee could easily skim a few cards. With RFID becoming more popular, it doesn't even require someone to have physical access to a card. It will be difficult to trace if it is another "customer" with an RFID reader.We've had stores with similar problems in New England. The credit thieves enter a supermarket very late at night when there's a minimal staff around. As they're checking out with the groceries someone questions a price. When the check out clerk goes to verify the price, the thieves either remove the card reader and pop another one in its place or they attach a skimmer similar to the ones they use at ATMs. This is why it's harder to trace; there's no breach of the database and the customer still has the card.Nancy
