Goodwill Industries International is a membership organization comprised of 165 independent Goodwill headquarters in the United States and Canada. Goodwill Industries International was contacted last Friday afternoon by a payment card industry fraud investigative unit and federal authorities informing us that select U.S. store locations may have been the victims of possible theft of payment card numbers. Investigators are currently reviewing available information. At this point, no breach has been confirmed but an investigation is underway.
Goodwills across North America take the data of consumers seriously and their community well-being is our number one concern. Goodwill Industries International is working with industry contacts and the federal authorities on the investigation. We will remain apprised of the situation and will work proactively with any individual local Goodwill involved taking appropriate actions if a data compromise is uncovered.
