Just talked to my bank. The only way to protect yourself is have your bank issue you a new card. Just a heads up.


Target must use the same security as Obama care web site !
How many life's will the screw up. Only time will tell. Will they be sending a letter to everyone as they put it may have their information compromised, I think not. Be sure to change your pass code on your cards if you shopped in target.

Merry Christmas To All !!
