Breach At Target Stores May Affect 40 Million Card Accounts
December 19, 2013
If you are among the millions of shoppers that used debit or credit cards at Target stores from November 27 through December 15, 2013, your card may have been compromised. This includes Black Friday, traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year.
In a recent press release, Target reported that debit and credit card information for as many as 40 million customers was compromised over a three week period of the holiday shopping season. This is one of the largest breaches of American consumer data to date.
Target officials said that customers who made purchases at its U.S. stores during the three weeks in question should call them at (866)852-8680 or obtain copies of their credit reports from the three major credit reporting agencies - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.
Security State Bank & Trust strongly urges consumers to regularly review their bank account and credit card statements carefully and report any unauthorized transactions posted to their accounts as soon as it is detected.
