Camila Souza

If you recently ate at America's favorite Chinese Bistro, you should check your credit card statement. According to a recent report released today, thousands of credit card numbers are on sale online after hackers targeted P.F. Chang's chain.

According to The Verge, it's unknown how widespread the breach is, but banks told Krebs that the card information appeared to have been stolen from locations in at least six states as well as Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Argentina, Chile, and the Middle East. The card numbers, which are being sold for between $18 and $140, were used at the chain between March and May.

If the hacking allegations are true, an estimated 1 million to 2 million cards were stolen. P.F. Chang's says it is investigating the breach.
