neimanNeiman Marcus Group said data from more than a million of its customers’ payment cards may have been nabbed by hackers who breached the upscale retailer’s system last year.

The company said malicious software was surreptitiously installed to collect, or “scrape,” payment card information from July 16 to Oct. 30, leaving 1.1 million cards “potentially visible” to hackers.

Though the investigation is ongoing, Neiman Marcus said it has been informed by Visa, MasterCard and Discover that 2,400 cards have since been used fraudulently.

The high-end department store chain said patrons’ Social Security numbers, PIN numbers and birth dates weren’t compromised and that online shoppers seem to be in the clear. And so far, the company hasn’t seen any suspicious activity involving its Neiman Marcus cards.

Neiman Marcus is offering free credit monitoring and identity theft protection for all customers who bought from the store from January 2013 through this month.

    but basically choice is dependent on the type of work you will be doing.

    This is ideal for jobs close to the house, but may be cumbersome for those farther away.

    There arre people that take thedir work to festivals and fairs and

    sell their work to the public.
