Trump Hotels Reportedly Experience Card Breach

The Trump Hotel Collection has reportedly experienced a credit card breach in a number of U.S. locations, according to a post on Krebs on Security. Several U.S.-based banks traced a pattern of fraudulent debit and credit card charges to accounts that had all been used at Trump hotels, the article states. The breach appears to extend back to at least February 2015.

“Like virtually every other company these days, we have been alerted to potential suspicious credit card activity and are in the midst of a thorough investigation to determine whether it involves any of our properties,” said Eric Trump, executive vice president of development and acquisitions, in a statement. “We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly.”

Credit card breaches involving hotel brands so far this year include Mandarin Oriental and White Lodging.
