Update: Owner claims credit card breach fixed

ROTTERDAM, N.Y. — Hackers stole information to make fake credit cards used throughout the U.S. and Canada.

ROTTERDAM, N.Y. — The owner of Colonial Car Wash says the credit card breach that affected his business in March has been resolved, according to News10.com. The breach affected the Rotterdam location only.

“People are not trusting us right now,” added Fusco in the article. “We had over 200 cancellations just in this one location.”

Rotterdam Police and the Secret Service investigated the incident. They say fake cards were made and used throughout the U.S. and Canada from information stolen from the wash when the routing system was hacked, shared the article.

Fusco encouraged other business owners to keep their virus and malware protection up to date. “A lot of it alluded to a lack of keeping up with our licensing with our actual router. Not our computer equipment but our actual router and network and bad passwords,” he explained in the article.

“You really need a good IT company,” Fusco continued in the article. “Especially if you’re handling credit cards as we do. We do thousands of credit card transactions here in a weekend.”
