ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Schnucks officials continue to refuse an on-camera with NewsChannel 5, the station that broke the story about the security breach first.

Right now, experts are saying that it's hard to tell you how many victims are out there.

"If the breach was only one or two days long, or a few days long, then it might be minimized, but if the breach was several weeks, or a month, you could have a lot of people affected by it," said Dennis Johnson, who is a certified credit counselor with Clearpoint.

He went on to say that it could also take some time before those unauthorized charges show up on your bank statements. In fact, he explained that they'll take longer to appear online than they will on the print outs.

Schnucks has known about the breach since March 15. Over the weekend, officials released a written statement saying they had found and contained the issue.

When KSDK requested an interview with Schnucks CEO Scott Schnuck, this statement was e-mailed out:
"We are declining interviews as our investigation is ongoing. Our Consumer Affairs team continues to speak directly to our customers with regard to this issue. They've been engaged from the start."
