BIG data breach! Have you shopped at one of these stores??

Identity theft happens so often, it's hard to keep track of it anymore!

Another data breach has affected customers of 14 businesses, and if you've shopped at any of these places in the last 18 months, your information could be compromised. 

If you suspect your info could have been stolen. HERE are tips for what to do

Here's the list of 14 stores whose data has been breached:

  1.  Saks Fifth Avenue.  They announced this week that up to five million credit card numbers might have been stolen.  And the same company owns Lord & Taylor too.

  2.  Panera Bread.  They also confirmed this week that a flaw in their website might have left 37 million people's information open to hackers. 

 3.  Whole Foods.  If you only bought groceries, you don't have to worry.  But last summer, they said the payment system used in their in-store cafes got hacked.

  4.  Forever 21.  Anyone who shopped there between March and October of last year could have been hacked.  They announced it back in November.  

5.  Kmart.  They confirmed last June that customers' credit card info got stolen.

  6.  Sonic.  Five million credit card numbers might have been stolen last year, across more than 3,600 locations.

  7.  GameStop.  Someone stole names, addresses, and credit card numbers from customers who shopped there between August 2016 and February 2017.
