THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Thomas County investigators are looking into a case of debit card fraud.

A complaint was filed with the sheriff's office today after a man checked his bank account, and discovered that about $3,000 was missing from the balance.

The woman told investigators that the card was used at the Zaxby's on U. S. 19 in Thomasville on Tuesday the 16th.

Zaxby's issued a long list of its stores that may have been the victim of a debit card security breach, and the Thomasville store was on that list.

Zaxby's says that "Credit card processing companies identified certain Zaxby's locations as common points of purchase for some fraudulent credit card activity.

"Zaxby's Franchising, Inc. assisted those stores in reviewing the issue, and during the course of the investigation identified some suspicious malware files on the licensees' computer systems at several Zaxby's locations.

"Because those malware files could have been used to export guest names and credit and debit card numbers, Zaxby's Franchising, Inc. informed appropriate law enforcement authorities of the potential criminal activity. "
