IMPORTANT DATA ABOUT TARGET DATA BREACH

 
   

Target Corp. has confirmed a data breach that may have affected 40 million credit and debit card holders who shopped at a Target store between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, 2013.

Wakota Credit Union is aware of this situation and monitoring it closely. If we note suspicious activity on your account, you will be notified.

You should ALWAYS check your monthly statements for suspicious transactions and notify Wakota at (651) 451-3330 promptly with any concerns.

If you do not report a suspicious transaction within sixty (60) days after the statement was mailed to you, you may not get back any money lost. Most complaints 60 days out will not be investigated unless you have a good reason for not reporting the theft sooner (such as an extended trip or hospital stay). You have no liability for an unauthorized EFT transaction that does not involve the use of a lost or stolen ATM card or debit card.

The Target Corporation has announced it will be reaching out to affected patrons, offering a free year of credit monitoring services. Click here for details.

 

It is important to remember that Wakota will never ask you for your card number, account number, PIN or any other personal information via a text, email or phone call. Should anyone contact you and ask you to 'confirm' this personal information, do not respond.

January 23, 2014
The National Credit Union Administration today warned of automated phone calls, purportedly from the NCUA, notifying consumers their debit cards have been compromised. The call then prompts for data including sensitive financial data and personal identification information.

Anyone contacted should immediately contact NCUA’s Consumer Assistance Center Hotline at 800-755-1030 or by email at phishing@ncua.gov to report the scam. Operators answer calls Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern.
