40 Million Accounts May Have Been Breached At Target
YIKES! When I read this story from the Associated Press, it made me a little nervous. Target says about 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been affected by a data breach.
I'm certain I shopped at Target more than once during the time that the accounts may have been impacted. (November 27th- December 15th)
The Minneapolis company said it immediately told authorities and financial institutions once it became aware of the breach and that it is teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate the matter.
Target Corp. said that customers who made purchases at its U.S. stores during the impacted period and suspected unauthorized activity should call them at 866-852-8680.
