Forever 21 falls victim to major credit card breach

15 November 2017

Clothing store Forever 21 said Tuesday that it received a report from a third party that suggested there may have been unauthorized access to data from payment cards that were used at certain stores.

On Tuesday, the U.S. clothing retailer said that the company recently received a tip from a third-party that there "may have been unauthorized access to data from payment cards" at a number of Forever 21 outlets.

This data breach might have specifically affected customers who shopped in the chain's stores from March 2017 through October 2017.

The company did not immediately return Business Insider's request for comment.
