Colo. police probe thousands of stolen debit card numbers
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (10/19/09)--Colorado Springs, Colo. police are investigating the thefts of thousands of debit card numbers stolen from members and customers of at least five financial institutions--including three credit unions--serving the area. Police spokesman Lt. David Whitlock said "thousands" were victims of the theft, but said police are still putting together the situation (The Gazette Oct. 16). The three credit unions named in the report were Ent FCU in Colorado Springs, Security Service FCU in San Antonio, and Air Academy FCU, in Colorado Springs. The other two institutions were not named. The $2.852 billion asset Ent FCU began notifying between 1,500 and 1,700 cardholders Oct. 10 that their numbers had been compromised. About 150 had fraudulent transactions posted to their accounts, the credit union told the Gazette. Security Service FCU, which has $5.264 billion in assets, said about 200 cards issued to its Colorado Springs area members were affected. The $464.6 million asset Air Academy FCU told the newspaper the security breach occurred at a local merchant. Fewer than 100 cardholders served by the credit union were affected.
