Default Restaurant Depot'ed AGAIN

Received another dang letter from Rest. Depot indicating that my credit card info. was potentially compromised. I feel like this JUST HAPPENED? Was it within the last year?
Spent 25 minutes 'on the phone' (holding) just to put it on record with AMEX. PIFA.

I use the DEPOT in Blauvelt, NY.

It's not clear from the info on their site. They say "any of our locations" but then in their letter state "some of our stores."

From their site:

If you rely on your debit card, I would go ahead and call your bank and cancel your debit card and get a new one, even though you have not got a letter yet from RD. You never know when the fraud will show up, and then you cannot plan for being without your card for a few days.

Thanx for the heads up. They do not send letters to those of us who use the day pass method. My card got hacked from there last year. I canceled my card today and will only use cash at RD from now on. Again thank you very much for passing the information on. Keith

I had to get a new business acct card and a new debit card. I am going all cash from now on. This is the 2nd time this has happened in a matter of 2 weeks.
