Michaels Stores Follow-up

As reported earlier this month, arts & crafts chain Michaels Stores disclosed that criminals had tampered with point-of-sale PIN pad devices at store registers in the Chicago area in a scheme to steal credit and debit card numbers and PIN codes. As originally suspected, new information from the investigation shows that many Michaels stores across the US have discovered compromised payment terminals.  Investigators said that at least 70 compromised POS terminals have been discovered so far in Michaels stores from Washington D.C. to the West Coast.
