If you have recently dined at the Durham location of P.F. Chang’s near The Street at Southpoint shopping center, you might want to closely monitor your credit and debit card account information.
P.F. Chang’s CEO Rick Federico released a Security Compromise Statement this morning informing the public that an intruder compromised credit and debit card data from 33 P.F. Chang’s China Bistro restaurants during specified time frames, including the Durham location at 6801 Fayetteville Road from February 21 through June 11, 2014.
We have determined that the security of our card processing systems was compromised, and we have reason to believe that the intruder may have stolen some data from certain credit and debit cards that were used during specified time frames at 33 P.F. Chang's China Bistro branded restaurant locations in the continental United States. The potentially stolen credit and debit card data includes the card number and in some cases also the cardholder's name and/or the card's expiration date. However, we have not determined that any specific cardholder's credit or debit card data was stolen by the intruder.
Federico states that after the breach was found, an investigation was immediately launched and is still ongoing. He also claims that P.F. Chang’s “has been processing credit and debit card date securely since June 11, 2014”.
P.F. Chang’s and Federico advises P.F. Chang’s past guests to review account statements for any unusual or fraudulent activity. A complete list of the P.F. Chang’s locations that were affected by the security breach can be found here.
P.F. Chang’s has also set up a confidential hotline to assist past guests with any additional questions about the security breach. The hotline, 1-877-412-7152, is available Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (Central Standard Time).
