You may have heard the news about unauthorized access to payment card data at Target. According to Target’s information on their website, customers who made credit or debit card purchases inside Target’s U.S. stores from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15, 2013, may be impacted.
Virginia Credit Union is taking action. We have processes in place to reduce the potential for card fraud. As we receive information about VACU debit or credit cards that are affected, we will notify those members individually with more information.
In the meantime, if you shopped inside a Target store from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15, 2013 and used a VACU debit or credit card please:
- Monitor your accounts closely and report any suspicious activity immediately by calling 1-866-820-8785.
- If you used your VACU debit card, please go to a VACU-owned ATM if possible to change your debit card PIN.
- Beware of unsolicited emails, text messages and phone calls that request personal or account information. Scammers may try to take advantage of situations in the news. Do not reply to a suspicious messages or click on any links in them.
VACU cardholders have $0 liability, which means members pay nothing in the event of unauthorized purchases on their VACU cards.
Thank you for taking action and working with your credit union to help reduce the potential for fraud.
