As our valued customer, we want to assure you that safeguarding your account is important to us. We continuously monitor debit cards for fraudulent activity, and have monitoring triggers in place to alert us of any suspicious activity. If such activity is experienced to your account, your card could be blocked.
As an additional measure, to help ensure the safety of your account, we are reissuing debit cards to those customers who may be affected. If you are included in this group, you should receive a new debit card by mid-February. Please be sure to activate your new card and destroy your old one by March 10. Please remember to notify any businesses where you may have automatic payments set up with your debit card.
We encourage you to continue monitoring your account and make sure that only authorized transactions are posted. You can monitor your account using Online or Mobile Banking. You can also sign up for email and text alerts regarding the activity on your account through Online Banking. If you notice any suspicious activity and suspect fraud, please contact us immediately. Please keep in mind you are not responsible for the payment of any unauthorized transactions you report to us in a timely manner.
Also, Target is offering one free year of credit monitoring through Experian. The deadline to receive an activation code for enrollment is April 23, 2014. For more information, please visit creditmonitoring.target.com.
