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.”
