NATIONAL HARBOR, MD - MARCH 6, 2014: Donald Trump speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

Donald Trump’s line of luxury hotels may be the latest victim of a credit card data breach, according to Krebs On Security.

The possible breach was discovered when some financial institutions noticed a pattern of fraudulent activity on credit and debit cards at some hotels that are part of The Trump Hotel Collection. The hotels where cards may have been compromised included those in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas and Honolulu. The breach may have first occurred in February of this year.

“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,” Eric Trump told Brian Krebs in a statement. “We are committed to safeguarding all guests’ personal information and will continue to do so vigilantly.”

A flood of major data breaches have swept the country during the past 18 months, including several hotel chains such as Mandarin Oriental Hotels and White Lodging Services.
