The Suring resident says two fraudulent charges appeared on his bank card. And while the casino hasn’t confirmed it, he believes his information could have been stolen during the attack.
Just one day before the Menominee casino closed due to a cyberattack on its computer systems, Otradovec says he paid for gas at the Thunderbird Convenience Store, an affiliated business that was also hacked.
The enrolled Menominee man called casino security when his bank told him charges for $53.99 and $350.99 were made from Colorado to international money transfer website WorldRemit. “That kind of threw a red flag to where that’s gotta be possibly a 99-percent chance that that’s where it came from,” he said.
Casino leaders did not respond to NBC 26’s phone calls, but the business released a statement on Monday. “At this time, we do not believe any secure information has been compromised,” Casino General Manager Daniel Hansen said in the statement. As of right now the Menominee Casino Resort is still closed. Casino and tribal leaders met this morning and are still working with the FBI to resolve the issue.
