Fixing up my red card

December 31st, 2013 at 05:21 am

I have a Target Red Card and noticed that I had used it between the times card information was stolen. I have to assume that I was one of the 40M.

So far, no strange spurious transactions. However, I'm royally sick of the "no, they didn't steal this, so you are safe" then it turns that this happened, but you really are still safe. The final straw was encripted PINs. The hackers didn't have the PINs, then they did, but not the encription key. I changed my PINs up and made a teeny purchase to test.

Still watching.

On another note about still watching, I am collecting lists for 2014. If you are interested in playing, email me directly.

    My credit card, both target and regular were used during that time. I'm keeping my eye on it.

    I used my Target Red card, and our new Capital One debit card. No signs of problems yet. Not much in the CO account to even matter. Also, I set up alerts on the Red Card for large transactions. I'll check for the small ones twice per month.

    I didn't use my target card during the time period in question, but I'm thinking of closing the card anyway. The way I see it, any store that can't secure their network/website doesn't deserve my business. If customers continue to put up with periodic hack jobs, nothing will change, becus the banks would rather not spend the money to upgrade security.
