My friend Bob Sullivan is warning consumers today to keep a close eye on their Startbucks app if they are using it.
“…but I’d like to reiterate my warning to the 13 million or so Starbucks app users: It’s *still* not safe to link a credit or debit card to your Starbucks account; if I were you, I’d delete my payment information immediately from the app and manually reload the app.
As I described last year, criminals who manage to obtain Starbucks consumers’ login credentials have a relatively easy time transferring gift card / app balances onto cards they control; worse yet, they can initiate new transactions from a victims’ debit or credit card onto the consumers’ card, and then move the money onto their own cards. That lets them steal from consumers’ bank accounts without even knowing the victims’ bank account information.”
