Wendy’s May Have had Data Stolen
Though the fast food chain Wendy’s isn’t really sure just how extensive the data breach is (at least that’s what they say), they’re advising customers to monitor transactions to make sure criminals aren’t abusing their cards.

While the investigation is in its early stages, Wendy's is not yet able to fully determine the complete impact or scope of a potential breach. Though Wendy's has not yet made an official confirmation if a breach has, in fact, occurred, the company is providing some general guidance for its customers.
"As always, in line with prudent personal financial management, we encourage our customers to be diligent in watching for unauthorized charges on their payment cards," Wendy's stated. "Generally, individuals that report unauthorized charges in a timely manner to the bank that issued their card are not responsible for those charges."
