Hacks hacked! Global Payments, one of the companies that processes credit card payments in NYC taxi and livery services, has been hacked, putting (at their estimate) tens of thousands of cards at risk. ANIMAL’s own Bucky Turco had a thousand dollars worth of fraudulent charges charged to his debit card.
Chase and Bank of America card holders are at risk, so no time like the present to switch out your debit card for a fresh one. (Or even make the switch from a big bank to a credit union. They aren’t immune from hacks, either, but still.)
