Donald Trump’s Hotels Hit by Major Credit Card Breach


Customer data at seven of Donald Trump’s hotels may have been stolen after their payment systems were hacked for over a year.

The Trump Hotel Collection said on its website that hackers gained access to its systems between May 2014 and June 2015 at the front desk of those hotels, AP reported.

Hotel restaurants and gift shops were also hacked.

The hotel operator said an independent forensic investigation has not found any evidence of customer’s information being misused. The company is offering affected customers a year of free identity theft protection.Donald Trump hotels credit card data breach
