I got a letter in the mail today from DSW Shoe Warehouse. It seems that they've had a whole crap-load of credit and debit card numbers stolen.
And DSW can only notify you if you're in the reward club and they have you address from that.
So if you've used a card to shop at DSW (ever) you might want to contact your card issuer to make sure everything is kosher. My bank is getting me a free credit report to look for issues.
I'm trying to remember when I bought shoes there. I know it was one time, and I think it was back when I had a real job - so in 2004 sometime. Why is DSW even keeping card numbers on file that long?
I've been lucky, this is the first problem I've had with potential identity theft and it's a minor one compared to the horror stories I've heard.
