I'm getting more reports of card fraud (cloned cards) taking place in the South East

Maybe a month ago I wrote about reports of card fraud taking place in North Carolina.  These were physical (card present) transactions in which other items of approximately $200 each were purchased.  These are likely gift cards or some other form of anonymous payment card.  This likely means that there was a stripe data breach and fake cards were made with the card stripe data.

I heard another report of this more recently, this time from a Discover Card customer.  Same MO, and the fraudulent transaction took place at a Walmart store just like the others.

A stripe data breach that has yet to be disclosed perhaps?
