Not a good day for some in Florida, specifically West Palm Beach, to find out something like this:

http://www.bestbuy.com/store/550/

1880 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd
West Palm Beach, FL 33401


If you were in the West Palm Beach area, in the store indicated, during November and December 2008, please take the time to read the following:

Substitute Notice Letter

Because this is listed here at the Storm Center, obviously a breach was involved, but I will repeat what the above letter states: "Although none of Best Buy’s electronic systems were compromised by this former employee’s actions, Best Buy believes that approximately 4,000 people could have been affected by this former employee’s unlawful skimming of customer credit card information."  The efforts indicated in the letter demonstrate a swift response by Best Buy to take care of the matter, and their customers.
