The Trump Hotel Collection appears to be the latest victim of credit card breach.

The news was first reported by Krebs on Security, citing data shared by several U.S.-based banks.  It involved a series of charges made to credit and debit cards that had previously been used at the hotel chain.

Potentially impacted Trump properties include those in Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.  The extent of the breach has not yet been disclosed.

“Like virtually every other company these days, we have been alerted to potential suspicious credit card activity and are in the midst of a thorough investigation to determine whether it involves any of our properties,” said Eric Trump, the company’s executive vice president of development and acquisitions, in a statement.

“We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly,” he added.
