Some customers of one local grocery chain are wondering why they are just now learning about a series of credit card fraud incidents.
In a statement, Schnuck's spokesperson Paul Simon said that the company had become aware on March 15 that some customers had noticed unauthorized charges on their card statements for credit cards they had used at Schnucks. Complaints have be received from shoppers across the metro area.
Schnucks officials say they're working with police and a private outside forensic team to try to find the source of the compromise.
Police say the leak may not be with the grocer, but with a third-party vendor that processes transactions.
