Several credit and debit cards used at Hershey’s park, lodge, ticket stations and food stands revealed to financial institutions a pattern of fraudulent activities.  These cards were all used between mid-March and May 2015.

“We have received reports from some of our guests that fraud charges appeared on their payment cards after they visited our property,” said Kathleen McGraw, director of communications for Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Company.

“We take reports like this very seriously,” McGraw continued. “While our company does have security measures in place designed to prevent unauthorized access to our network, we immediately began to investigate our system for signs of an issue and engaged an external computer security firm to assist us. The investigation is ongoing.”
