51 franchised UPS Stores in 24 states are affected, according to UPS.
The only store in Oklahoma affected is the Sapulpa location. Employees there referred KRMG to a corporate call center dedicated to fraud situations.
We spoke to a rep who told us the company was told about the security issue in late July, but Malware was traced back in their system as far back as January 2014. The company says transactions between March 26 and August 11 are the ones in which customer data was in danger.
“We are not aware of any reports of fraud associated with the Malware incident.” UPS Rep Nicole Cox, said.
But still, the company is strongly urging customers who swiped a card in the Sapulpa store during that March-August time period keep a close eye on their credit card and/or bank accounts. The company says names, addresses, e-mail addresses and credit card information could all be at risk for those customers.
UPS will provide FREE ID protection to potential fraud victims that stem from their breach.
