From the New York website: The Donald’s been hacked – and you may have been as well, if you stayed at one of his hotels recently.

Trump Hotel Collection confirmed Monday that hackers gained access to payment systems at the front desks of seven Trump hotels between May 2014 and June 2014. Customer credit card and debit card numbers may have been stolen as a result, the hotel company said.

Hotel restaurants and gift shops were also hacked, according to the Associated Press, though the hotel operator said an independent forensic investigation has yet to find evidence of customer information being misused.

Still, Trump Hotel Collection is offering affected customers a year of free identity theft protection, and the company said it is working with the U.S. Secret Service and the FBI to help “catch these criminals and proscute them to the full extent of the law.”

Potential thefts occurred at the Trump National Doral in Miami, Trump Soho New York, Trump International New York, Trump International Chicago, Trump International Waikiki in Hawaii, Trump International Hotel and Tower Las Vegas and Trump International Toronto.
