Approx. 200-300 Serious Texas Bar-B-Q Customers Affected by Data Breach

| September 02, 2010

Shane Benjamin of The Durango Herald writes: Several hundred customers at Serious Texas Bar-B-Q were subject to debit-card fraud or attempted fraud earlier this year in Durango, police said.

Customers who used debit cards during February and March at Serious Texas Bar-B-Q may have had their card information stolen as part of a nationwide cyber breach, said Sgt. Dan Shry, investigator with the Durango Police Department.

Only customers at the south location, 650 South Camino del Rio, were affected, Shry said. Credit-card numbers also may have been stolen, he said, but so far, police have received reports only of debit-card fraud.

"I can assume credit cards were getting defrauded, too, but the main part of our cases were debit cards from local banks," Shry said.

A credit-card software vendor for Serious Texas Bar-B-Q was hacked, Shry said. The restaurant is not at fault, he said. He estimated between 200 and 300 customers were affected.
