One of the nation's most popular stores is dealing with a major credit card breach.

Teen and millennial fashion retailer Forever 21 issued a statement Tuesday warning customers of a potential data breach that may have compromised credit card information.

Forever 21 didn't immediately respond to a request for more info on the hack.

"Because of the encryption and tokenization solutions that Forever 21 implemented in 2015, it appears that only certain point-of-sale devices in some Forever 21 stores were affected when the encryption on those devices was not in operation", the company said in a statement. If you didn't make an in-store purchase during that time period then relax!

It claims that the data breach likely affected these terminals when the company's encryption wasn't running on them. Forever 21 hasn't disclosed which locations could have been a part of the stolen information.

"We immediately began an investigation of our payment card systems and engaged a leading security and forensics firm to assist us", the company said.

"The latest Forever 21 breach proves how critical it is for retailers and other companies to step up their security, particularly as we enter the holiday shopping season". When I'm not scrolling through various timeline's I'm researching skin care regiments and watching the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Forever 21 is suggesting that customers that shopped at its stores during the time mentioned above should keep a close eye on their credit and debit cards. "We will continue to work to address this matter", the firm said.
