TARGET Debit/Credit Card Compromise - How does this affect your Community Bank account?
On Thursday, December 19, 2013, Target stores alerted their customers of the potential for debit and credit card fraud as a result of a data compromise from purchases made in their U.S. stores. The compromise occurred from November 27, 2013 through December 15, 2013. According to current information, the compromise did not impact online purchases.
