The brash financial mogul and GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s rough week just got even more so with news of a cyberattack involving his hotel properties.
The chain of luxury hotel properties entitled The Trump Collection were apparently hit with a credit card breach that dates back to February of this year.
In a statement by Eric Trump, the company confirmed the possible attack: “Like virtually every other company these days, we have been alerted to potential suspicious credit card activity and are in the midst of a thorough investigation to determine whether it involves any of our properties.”
According to sources, the breach involves Trump hotels in Honolulu, New York City, Chicago, Las Vegas and Miami in addition to other locations across the country.
The first reports of the issue at properties within The Trump Collection were issued by banks who had spotted a series of suspicious debit and credit card charges.
Outside of the statement issued on Tuesday by the business magnate’s third son, the company would not comment on the matter further except to assure customers that they were still keeping their customers’ information as safe as possible.
