The New Albany Chamber of Commerce alerted members through e-mail about the possibility of fraudulent activity twice in the last week.

Director Eileen Leuby sent an e-mail last week to chamber members about a nationwide breach of Heartland Payment Systems. The e-mail stated that hackers had broken into the company's system, which is used to process both online and point-of-purchase credit card transactions.

Leuby told ThisWeek that she doesn't believe any chamber members' information was compromised, because most of the stolen information came from point-of-purchase sales. She said no one has reported suspicious credit-card activity to her, but chamber members should keep a close eye on their statements.

Thursday morning, Leuby sent an e-mail that stated a company was calling chamber members and claiming to be a mapping company doing a project for the chamber.

In the e-mail, Leuby wrote that the chamber is not doing a mapping project. She asked members to verify all projects with the New Albany Chamber of Commerce and advised that credit-card information shouldn't be given over the telephone.
