Safeway is the latest to fall victim to a credit card skimming attack, with 3 Colorado stores being affected.

Colfax Ave. in Lakewood, 3800 W. 44th Ave. in Denver, and 2752 Main St. In Conifer, after the threat was first reported by the online cyber security blog, Krebs on Security.
It is how many customers were affected by the breach.
