Friday, Target CEO Gregg Steinhafel shared a message about the unauthorized access to payment card data at our U.S. stores. The recent data breach has been resolved and we are focused on addressing your concerns. We have been listening to your feedback and know you still may have some questions.

Below, we share five critical tips for you to know now:

1.       You have zero liability for any charges that you didn’t make.

2.       If you review your credit or debit account and sees charges you did not make, contact us at 1-866-852-8680. Otherwise, you do not need to call.

3.       Target will never ask for your social security or PIN number. If you receive a request for that information, you should ignore or delete the communication.

4.       Target will be providing free fraud monitoring to all impacted guests and will reach out to those guests in the coming weeks.

5.       In addition, everyone is entitled to a free credit report, directly, from each of the three nationwide credit reporting agencies. To order an annual free report, please visit www.annualcreditreport.com, call toll free at 1-877-322-8228, or directly contact the three nationwide credit reporting companies. If you are aware of any suspicious activities, you should call the issuing bank.
