Internet electronics retailer Play.com has rolled out e-mails to customers warning of a security breach that could compromise credit card details.
The online retailer has seemingly been the victim of a security breach, and is informing customers via this mail. However, Play.com insists that it isn't the retailer which leaked the details, but a firm which handles marketing for them.
The e-mail sent to customers reads: " We are e-mailing all our customers to let you know that a company that handles part of our marketing communications has had a security breach."
According to the email this means that some customer names and e-mail addresses may have been exposed.
Play.com advised its customers to be vigilant with e-mail and personal information when using their site and the internet. "At Play.com we will never ask you for information such as passwords, bank account details or credit card numbers. If you receive anything suspicious in your e-mail, please do not click on any links and forward the e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for us to investigate."
