    The Bashas' Family of Stores issued a statement today regarding a recent cyber attack on their electronic payment system.
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The FBI is investigating an international case of fraudulent credit and debit card use that appears to have started with a cyber attack on an Arizona-based chain of grocery stores.

According to a news release from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, reports of the fraudulent transactions began on Jan. 18. Over 400 cases have been reported.

Investigators have determined that all of the victims had used their credit or debit cards at either Bashas', AJ's Fine Foods or Food City locations.

Fraudulent activity tied to these victims' accounts is being reported in several states and countries.

Federal, state and city law enforcement agencies are working together on the investigation.

The Bashas' Family of Stores is cooperating with investigators.

According to the release, the store was victimized by a cyber attack in June or July of 2012 by suspects who gained access to parts of their system to capture payment information from customers.

In a statement from The Bashas' Family of Stores, the company said the malware was removed and additional security measures were added, but customers are encouraged to monitor their debit and credit card transactions and report any unusual activity.

The Pinal County Sheriff's Office included a surveillance image of three men. Anyone with information about the three men in the photo are urged to call 1-800-420-8689 or 520-866-5111.
