Breach Didn’t Affect Target Cards 27 Feb 14

Target has sent some new information to customers dealing with the aftermath of the massive data breach. The letter says Target has not yet detected any fraud involving its own store credit cards, and there has been only a small amount of additional fraud involving its Target Visa credit cards. The retailer says it is speeding up its 100-million dollar investment in chip-enabled smart cards that company officials believe will offer significantly more protection to users. Target says its goal is to have the new cards in use by early next year, six months sooner than its original goal.
