Best Buy Customers Should Watch Their Credit Report
On Friday, Best Buy released a statement online that a 3rd-party company they use to chat with customers suffered a data breach. The company, 7.ai, runs the chat services for customers coming to Best Buy through their phone or computer.
7.ai told Best Buy that their information suggested that an "illegal intrusion" happened between Sept. 27 and Oct. 12, 2017. 7.ai said that some customer payment information may have been compromised during that time and, if that were the case, then a number of Best Buy customers would have had their payment information compromised, as well.
