Many of you may have watched the news yesterday and learned of a breach in security at Target Stores in the US. Target has confirmed that there was unauthorized access to payment card data in its U.S. Stores between November 27th, 2013 and December 15th, 2013. If you used a Credit or Debit Card at Target during this time frame- you will want to watch your accounts closely. This is not isolated to REDcards, and can affect any type of credit or debit card used at a physical Target location during this time period.
While the breach has now been resolved- if you used a credit or debit card at a US Target store location during this time period- you will still want to monitor your accounts closely. If you see suspicious or fraudulent charges- you should contact your bank or credit card company immediately, or if this suspicious or fraudulent activity is on your REDcard you should contact Target immediately at 866-852-8680.
