The New York-based company is warning customers to check for unauthorized transactions and to change their personal identification numbers, or PINs. It hasn't said how many accounts may have been compromised.

The bookseller said in a statement Tuesday only one of the devices, known as PIN pads, was tampered with in each of the 63 stores. The stores are in California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

The company says it disconnected all the PIN pads in its nearly 700 stores nationwide on Sept. 14 after learning of the tampering. Federal authorities are helping in its investigation.
