Restaurant chain customers' credit card data stolen
By Bruce Mohl, Globe Staff | October 24, 2007
Not Your Average Joe's, a Massachusetts restaurant chain, said yesterday that thieves have stolen credit card data belonging to its customers.
The Dartmouth-based chain estimated less than 3,500 of the 350,000 customers it served in August and September had their credit card information stolen. The 14-restaurant chain said it is working with the US Secret Service and major credit card companies to determine how the data theft occurred and precisely how many customers were affected.
Today, the chain plans to post on its website a notice to customers about the security breach.
