Prosecutors who spearhead economic crimes investigations say that despite the lack of all details available to the community, the probe is moving swiftly and outcomes look promising.

While each local law enforcement body conducts its own investigation, a cooperative approach has been adopted with all information being openly shared.

Experts advised customers who used the targeted Walmart registers and notice suspicious activity on their credit card statements to contact their respective financial institutions and local police.
