If you have ordered from Knit Picks, keep a VERY close eye on whatever card you used to do so. While the company hasn’t bothered to notify their customers, the
California Vermont AGs office posted about the breach on February 11 February 7. Of course you’ve still been getting your emails from KP pushing their products.
While the KP site says they don’t store your credit card info, it appears (admittedly this is just heresay) they’re lying about that. Cards are actively being exploited now. Certainly if you ordered between Thanksgiving 2012 and January 25, 2013 you should seriously consider contacting your financial institution and getting a new card issued immediately. We ordered a new card last night on the account my husband used for my Christmas present (ironically I sent him there for the tools because it’s a “reputable” company). I haven’t ordered anything for quite some time, so I’m holding off on replacing the card I use for online shopping.
The Knit Picks web site and blog still haven’t mentioned the issue. PR? They’re failing hard right now.
