On Tuesday, Feb. 28 the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board became aware of a credit card processing error that may impact customers and licensees who made purchases in stores between Nov. 23 and Nov. 28, 2011.

While processing daily credit card data, duplicate charges were posted to customer accounts which reflect their original purchase from Nov. This processing error affects only in-store purchases and not items purchased through the agency ecommerce website.

No customer personal data was compromised during the processing error. The Liquor Control Board is working closely with its banking partner to correct the duplicate charges as quickly as possible and will remain in contact with customers to provide updates.

The PLCB has established a dedicated toll-free number, 1-855-353-2827, to assist customers with questions or concerns related to any duplicate charges they may have incurred. Updated information will also be available by visiting the PLCB website at

The Liquor Control Board sincerely apologizes for the error and any inconvenience this may have caused its customers.
