If you’ve shopped at the Carson Village Market recently, you might want to pay special attention to your credit card bill.

The Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office and the Carson City Police Department reported Monday that they have received a large number of calls from shoppers who have found that their credit card information was fraudulently used to make purchases at retailers in southeast Michigan and the Detroit area. All of the victims reported making credit card purchases within the past few weeks at the Carson Village Market, 10715 E. Carson City Road, Bloomer Township.

The store, located west of Carson City, confirmed that their local server was compromised by hackers and that their IT service has stopped the unauthorized access. A store representative said that proper security measures have been put in place and customers are no longer at risk.

Deputies are working with the Carson City Police Department and the Michigan State Police to assist the victims and attempt to locate the unknown offenders. At this time, over a dozen victims have been identified, with at least eight reports being made to the Carson City Police Department, nine to the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office, and others to other area agencies. Any additional victims should report it to their financial institution, and the Montcalm County Sheriff’s Office at 989-831-3500 or local police.
