ALPHARETTA, Ga. — An Alpharetta woman contacted police Jan. 7 after she realized she had become the victim of credit card fraud following a data breach at Macy’s.
In November, the woman bought a pair of shoes online from the company. Shortly after making the purchase, the woman received a letter about a data breach on the site.
After the receiving the notification, the woman began to receive multiple letters about new accounts opened in her name at Sprint, Macy’s, AT&T and Sam’s Club. The accounts carried about $3,000 in fraudulent charges.
The woman cancelled the accounts and requested a fraud alert on her credit.
