People who were members of the Transformers Club run by Fun Publications became aware that their credit card information had been compromised. Fun Publications conducted an investigation and determined that their e-commerce database had been compromised sometime around January 31.  Members were encouraged to monitor their credit cards closely and to consider replacing any cards that were used with Fun Publications for event registration, club store purchases, or other purchases. One member who used similar login information for both the Transformers Club and PayPal realized that his PayPal account had been compromised.
