The Texas Retail Association informed FMI of a scam taking place in their state where a company is approaching retailers, providing misleading information, installing new SNAP terminals and then walking off with the previously installed terminals. In this instance the terminals belonged to FIS. Several retailers have already been the victim of this scam. FMI immediately informed USDA and they revised the following information. Item #6 covers both what's described above, and another vulnerability that a retailer has made USDA aware of very recently. USDA is also posting this update on the FNS website.
