Chick-fil-A Investigating Possible Credit Card Breach

http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/12/31/chick-fil-a-investigating-possible-credit-card-breach/

LANHAM, Md. (WNEW) – Atlanta-based fast food chain Chick-fil-A announced Wednesday it is investigating a possible credit card breach involving several of its restaurants in Maryland and other states.

The corporation released this statement:

“Chick-fil-A recently received reports of potential unusual activity involving payment cards used at a few of our restaurants. We take our obligation to protect customer information seriously, and we are working with leading IT security firms, law enforcement and our payment industry contacts to determine all of the facts. We want to assure our customers we are working hard to investigate these events and will share additional facts as we are able to do so. If the investigation reveals that a breach has occurred, customers will not be liable for any fraudulent charges to their accounts — any fraudulent charges will be the responsibility of either Chick-fil-A or the bank that issued the card. If our customers are impacted, we will arrange for free identity protection services, including credit monitoring.”


The company has not yet released which locations are affected.

78 F in Fort Lauderdale FL! Too warm for late December...

I'm confident, however, that Fort Lauderdaleans are NOT complaining.

It seems ok for use at home, but not for a working professional.

two kinds of trolls: paid and unpaid

I'm very confident there's at least one paid troll on DU, because it just makes sense from the RNC perspective. Probably more than that. From a conservative and Republican point of view, why not disrupt the largest Democratic Party-oriented (not endorsed or affiliated, of course) on the internet ?

Unpaid trolls, plenty of them. They love to argue (not discuss), be snarky, be disrespectful, get people hidden, and in extreme cases get people PPR'ed. From what I've seen, they are 100% white (or that's what they claim). It was interesting who did not rec my giant thread about welcoming black people back to DU and who did not comment. It's interesting who NEVER recs or positively comments in racism-related threads. It's interesting who never starts a positive racism-related thread. One can judge for oneself from all pieces of evidence.

I'm a white guy also. I also believe in listening and learning. I'm still learning about cultural appropriation versus cultural assimilation, so I'm not commenting on those threads. What I do know is, we white people need to be respectful and listen. We always need to be respectful. You're a good guy, Tobin, and I'm glad you're here. Some of the other white people, imho, need to leave DU. If one cannot respect black people, one needs to leave DU and leave the Democratic Party. It's just that simple.

Aren't you glad you don't live here ?

Last-minute gift idea: 'Miami Vice' Ferrari on eBay for $1.75 million

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/12/24/us-usa-miami-ferrari-idUSKBN0K218E20141224

(Reuters) - Procrastinating holiday shoppers can now grab one of Miami’s most iconic two-seaters: the all-white 1986 Ferrari Testarossa driven by TV cops "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs in the hit 1980s series "Miami Vice."

The car is available on eBay through Jan. 7 and is being offered for $1.75 million by a south Florida pawn and auto loan company. It acquired the car in 2012 from the person who purchased it from the series producer, a department of Universal Studios, in 1991, according to Auto Pawn Plus owner Peter Lima.

“This has been in a garage, hidden for almost 30 years,” he said.

Ferrari could not be reached to confirm the car’s authenticity.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all Floridians!

It seems it will be a somewhat warm one this year.

Enjoy!
