Pretty much everyone has heard the news about the PlayStation Network’s recent security breach, and while consumers are taking of precautions to prevent identity theft, credit card companies have tried to reassure customers that there is no cause for alarm. Joint spokesmen for Wells Fargo, American Express, and MasterCard have come forward and said thus far they have seen no fraudulent activity stemming from the incident.
Visa said that if card members notice any unauthorized charges that they believe are related to the PSN hacking, they will take them off the bill. It’s definitely good that credit card companies are reacting calmly to this situation and reassuring customers. Though it’s certainly a bad situation for all involved, at least credit card customers won’t feel completely screwed if something goes wrong.
