UPDATE 1/13/14: Target has announced that 70 million of its customers' personal information may have been stolen in the payment card data breach, up from the 40 million originally announced. In addition, the breach may affect customers who shopped at Target before the timeframe of November 27, 2013 to December 15, 2013 originally announced as well as those that shopped online.
FD Community FCU is awaiting notification from VISA as to which credit cards and debit cards may have been compromised. Once we are notified of the cards affected, we will begin the process of reissuing those cards to reduce the possibility of fraud.
In the meantime, we recommend that you monitor your account activity closely utilizing the online tools available. Text alerts can be setup through online banking to notify you of payments exceeding $100 on your account. Alerts for new charges to your credit card can be set up as well by registering your FD Community credit card at EZCard (www.ezcardinfo.com).
As always, you can contact us at 203-753-9201 or 203-346-6185 during normal business hours if you have any questions.
