Credit cards at Target and FTC website

I am assuming that everyone that reads this heard about Target and potentially the credit and debit cards that were used on Black Friday until 15 December 2013 have been hacked.

An email I received from the FTC websites says ALL credit and debit cards used were potentially affected.

And, everyone should review their statements in the future to watch for suspicious charges.

The law requires the three nationwide consumer reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — to give you a free copy of your credit report every 12 months if you ask for it. To get your report, visitAnnualCreditReport.com or call 1-877-322-8228.

    • Thanks, Amy. I realized when a friend thought it was only the actual Target Cards that were affected that maybe she wasn’t the only one. I have collected multiple facts on Identity Theft in the last few months so I am going to put up a permanent page in case anyone needs them. It probably won’t happen until 2014 though.
