Michaels warns customers of possible data breach

Posted: Updated:


Arts and crafts retailer Michaels has some bad news for customers.

The company said Saturday that it may have been hit by a security breach. Michaels said it recently learned of "possible fraudulent activity" on some of its customers' payment cards.   
CEO Chuck Rubin said the company has not confirmed a breach, but wanted to alert customers. The company didn't say how many customers may be affected, when they shopped at the store, or if the possible breach affected in-store or online shoppers.

The news comes weeks after retailers Target and Neiman Marcus acknowledged security breaches. Michaels is advising customers to check financial statements for fraudulent activity.
