CU System
Computer virus in small biz snags Minnesota members
LAKE NEBAGAMON, Minn. (11/26/12)--A computer virus that targets small businesses by capturing card information before it is encrypted has been linked to a business in Lake Nebagamon, Minn., and has affected some nearby credit union members.

More than two dozen cases of credit and debit card fraud were linked to Ole's Country Market, a gas and grocery store in the community (Duluth News-Tribune Nov. 21). Members of credit unions are among the victims.

A member of nearby Superior (Wis.) Choice CU (SCCU) discovered an incidence of identity theft when she went online to access her credit union account.

SCCU member Amanda Majetick of Lake Nebagamon found two charges from North Carolina and one from England on her statement during a two-day period last week--each totaling a few hundred dollars, she told the newspaper. 

Majetick immediately called the $210 million asset SCCU, which canceled her card and reimbursed her for the stolen funds, the paper said.
