Subject: Hancock Fabrics ATM Fraud
Bank customers in California, Wisconsin and Missouri are reporting
fraudulent ATM withdrawals that police say are tied to transactions
conducted with the Hancock Fabrics retail chain.
In California, Napa Police Department spokesman Brian McGovern says
60 residents reported their cards being used by thieves. In one
case, a Napa resident reported $840 in cash withdrawals. The Hancock
Fabrics store on Imola Avenue in Napa was the "common thread" among
the numerous people who reported credit and debit card fraud.
McGovern says the store had recently replaced its point-of-sale
At about the same time, as many as 70 Wisconsin victims reported
suspicious ATM withdrawals from their accounts, according to Wood
and Portage county law enforcement, which also ties the thefts to
machines in Hancock Fabrics stores.
And in Missouri, at least 10 customers at Hancock Fabrics in the St.
Louis area reported their debit card numbers and pin numbers stolen
during the week of November 9.
Hancock Fabrics (HFKI) is a Baldwyn, MS-based fabrics and sewing
supplies retailer, operating 264 retail stores in 37 states. Hancock
so far as not responded to repeated calls inquiring about these
breaches and their possible link to the retailer.
