Are you a Victim?

As a result of the security breach involving millions of Target Corporation customer’s credit and debit card numbers, many local banks are reporting victims locally. The security breach was believed to have occurred at retail Target stores between November 27th and December 15th this year.  Target advises the compromised information includes the customer’s name, credit or debit card number, expiration date and CVV (the three-digit security code on back).

Pay close attention to activity on your account and verify all transactions are authorized. Any unauthorized transactions should be reported to the bank or to the authorities.

Additionally, here is an information link provided by Target for further information:



This is an unfortunate incident but serves as a reminder of the importance of reviewing your credit statements.
