(July 31, 2014) – The Ocean City Police Department is advising citizens of a recent cyber-attack that compromised the security of numerous credit card processing companies nationwide. One of the victims of the security breach includes an out-of-state company that has contracts with numerous Ocean City businesses, primarily restaurants and bars.

Businesses that were affected were compromised from June 2 until July 9, 2014; however, those systems are now secure. The United States Secret Service is currently investigating this case.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to check your bank statement to ensure that you are not a victim of this cyber-crime scam. Any citizen that believes their information may have been compromised should contact their bank or credit card issuer immediately.
