Wendy’s has confirmed a few days ago through NBC News that a second variant of malware has been discovered and that the number of franchise restaurants impacted will be “considerably higher” than the 300 originally reported. Wendy’s has not yet provided a list of affected restaurants, and St. Mary’s Bank continues to see increased fraud on cards that coincidentally have been used at various Wendy’s locations. Because of this, we strongly advise you to use extreme caution in choosing to use your cards at any Wendy’s location
until Wendy’s provides additional information on the affected locations or until they report that the breach has been fully contained.
Wendy’s customers may call a toll-free number (888-846-9467), or email PaymentCardUpdate@wendys.com
with specific questions.
