Costco Wholesale Canada Ltd.

On December 7, 2012, American Express notified the Organization that card skimming activity occurred at 1 or more of the Organization?s locations in Calgary, Okotoks, and Rocky View. Further, American Express advised the Organization that approximately 22 credit cards were duplicated and used in a fraudulent manner as a result of the skimming that occurred. As part of the Organization?s internal investigation, video surveillance tapes were reviewed and the Organization confirmed that skimming devices were installed on 4 gas pumps in Calgary between November 12, 2012, and November 16, 2012. Since the skimming devices were installed and then removed within the same day, the Organization cannot confirm whether the skimming devices captured the PIN as well.
