FOREVER 21 is notifying customers of a recent data breach that occurred from March through October 2017 at a group of FOREVER 21 stores. According to a statement released by the company, encryption at certain point-of-sale terminals was not functioning properly, resulting in the exposure of customer payment information. As the investigation is currently ongoing, the number of impacted customers is unknown at this time. The NJCCIC recommends all customers who shopped at FOREVER 21 stores during the impacted timeframe carefully monitor their bank card statements and report fraudulent charges as soon as possible.
