Investigators are fairly certain that people who used their credit or debit cards at Natural Provisions Market may be the targets of payment card fraud.  Anyone who used a debit or credit card at the store before July 2, and possibly as early as January 2012, should check their bank statements for phony charges.  It appears that hackers accessed Natural Provisions' credit card processors.
