Best Buy announced that a small number of customers who made online purchases between September 27 and October 12, 2017 may have had their payment information exposed. According to Best Buy’s statement, the data breach resulted from a cyber intrusion of 7.ai, a third-party vendor used to provide chat services for Best Buy’s customers via telephone or computer. Best Buy will offer free credit monitoring services to impacted customers who are interested and will notify affected individuals directly. The NJCCIC recommends all Best Buy customers monitor their financial accounts for suspicious activity and report any unauthorized charges immediately. We also recommend impacted customers take advantage of the free credit monitoring services offered.
