Kroger warms customers of possible spam emails

ATLANTA – Recently, Kroger sent their Kroger Plus customers’ a letter explaining that “someone outside of the company” had tapped into their data base and obtained customers’ names and email addresses.

According to Kroger, the data base contained names and email addresses of customers who voluntarily provided their names and email addresses to Kroger.

Kroger warning their customers to not be alarmed if they receive spam email messages and they apologize for any inconvenience. Kroger, also, wants to remind their customers not to open emails from senders they don’t know.

Also, “Kroger would never ask you to email personal information such as credit card numbers or social security numbers. If you receive such a request, it did not come from Kroger and should be deleted.”  

If you have any concerns, you are welcomed to call Kroger’s customer service center at 1-800-Krogers (1-800-576-4377).

Nordstrom at Mall of Georgia Held 1 of their exciting Beauty Day Events this past Saturday

Saturday I headed over to Nordstrom Mall of Georgia for a lil' beauty fun. At the store they highlighted the newest makeup line Trish McEvoy, skincare and fragrance must haves. I got a chance to get a makeover which was right on time because I was hosting an event later on that evening. Shontell the makeup artist for M.A.C. did my face and she was fantastic! 

I have all the pics and details on the different Make-up brands on my blog, www.TalkingWithTami.com
