South Africa Banks Hit by Fast-Food Restaurant Card Fraud

South Africa’s banks have lost tens of millions of rand after an “unauthorized international organization” hacked the card details of fast food restaurant customers, according to Payments Association of South Africa.

“There’s not a single bank that hasn’t been affected,” PASA Chief Executive Officer Walter Volker said in a phone interview today. “We first detected higher volumes of fraud early in the new year.”
