A "POINT OF SALE COMPROMISE" FORCES A NUMBER OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA WELLS FARGO CUSTOMERS TO HAVE THEIR CREDIT CARDS CANCELED.
A "POINT OF SALE COMPROMISE" MEANS THIEVES SOMEHOW GET CARD NUMBERS AT A STORE OR AN A-T-M... NOT BY HACKING A COMPUTER.
WELLS FARGO BELIEVES THE INCIDENT TOOK PLACE SOMEWHERE IN BERKLEY... BUT HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO PINPOINT IT.
OFFICIALS ALSO WARN WELLS FARGO CUSTOMERS MIGHT NOT BE THE ONLY ONES EFFECTED.
TAYLOR says: "Have to go back through all different places that I have charge accounts with them and give'em the new number. And you know it's just gonna be a problem and it's something that they should have had better security on."

HAMMOND says: "It looks very small impacting only a handful of credit card customers in the Oakland, Berkley area. But irregardless Wells Fargo has taken this matter seriously."

TAYLOR says: "They verified all the past purchases and nothing had actually been charged."

HAMMOND says: "Wells Fargo cards are protected by Wells Fargo protect. So if they do have any concern or suspect any fraudulent activity they should look at the number on the back of the card and call that number and go see a banker."
IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE EFFECTED BY THIS INCIDENT, POLICE SAY TO CONTACT YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY.
