SuperValu said the virtual break-in affected credit cards swiped at 228 stores between June 22 and July 17. Albertson's did not say how many of its 1,060 locations were affected by the hack. But it believes more than 700 were affected.
That includes every Acme, Jewel-Osco, Shaw's and Star Market -- plus all Albertson's stores in Southern California, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming and Southern Utah.
If one does not check (and monitor) their credit report(s)/FICO score, they may not be aware someone has racked up charges using their CCs so it is better to be safe than sorry.
the best thing to do is to ask for replacement cards ASAP.
You are misunderstanding what credit reports are. In this instance, is all you have to do is monitor the statement of the account you used at a Supervalu/Albertsons store. It would only hit your credit report if you never paid the credit card bill, which if that is the case, why are you using the card in the first place. Nobody gave Supervalu their social security number, so there is no credit risk.
So why does Albertsons even have my credit cards on file? I wish if these massive corporations insist on recording every single thing I do they would at least secure that data. We should be able to sue.
