Black Fri., Target Shoppers Could Be at Risk of Credit Card Fraud

Posted: Updated:

More than 40 million Target shoppers may have had their credit card information stolen.
Store officials say customers who made purchases using their cards between November 27th and December 15th could have had their information exposed. The hackers stole data from the magnetic strips on the back of the credit cards, but tech experts say if your information was stolen, you should not be worried.

"The banks and card brands offer consumers a great deal of protection. So while you may be without a credit card for a few days and have a lot of paperwork to deal with, at the end of the day you'll be taken care of," says Spiderlabs at Trustwave Director Charles Henderson.

And that's exactly how Bozeman Target shoppers feel.

Shopper Eden Potratz tells FOX Montana, "I'm really not worried. I shop at Target all the time and I figure they would notify me if there was anything going on and they haven't. So, I'm not worried."

Target is working closely with law enforcement and financial institutions to resolve the issue.
They have also teamed up with a third party forensics firm to investigate the matter.
