The market is the 24th in Northern California to be victimized by such a scheme, according to ABC News. More than 500 customers called Lucky about fraudulent or attempted fraudulent activity, parent company Save Mart Supermarkets said on its website in a customer advisory note.

“Every customer should continue checking their accounts regularly as a precaution if they used a checkout terminal in October or November,” the customer advisory stated.
