Arby’s experienced a data breach which spanned from October 25th, 2016 to January 19th, 2017. A number of our members who used their debit cards at Arby’s during this time frame have began to experience fraud. We have ordered new cards for all compromised cards due to this data breach. If your debit card was compromised you will be receiving a letter within the next few days and a new debit card within 10 business days. If you would like to know if your card is on the list, please contact us. We want to reassure you that your checking account information is safe. This data breach only affects your debit card, which is why it is important for all members affected by this breach to receive a new card with a new card number.
More about the Arby’s data breach: Malware on cash registers at Arby’s fast food restaurants across the country may have resulted in the breach of more than 355,000 credit and debit cards. It appears that Arby’s restaurants owned by the Atlanta, GA based company were affected, not franchise locations. The malware installed allowed attackers to remotely steal data from each credit card as it is swiped at the cash register. This is the same type of point-of-sale attack behind the massive breaches at Target and Home Depot which credit unions are still recovering from.
