TARGET STORES - COMPROMISED CARD ALERT
Dec. 27, 2013 - We have been notified of an increase in scams associated with the Target breach. Do not respond to any email or unknown caller asking for confidential information. We will NEVER ask you for your card number or your social security number to confirm transactions on your debit card. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us at 912-638-1190.
Between November 27 - December 15, 2013 debit and credit cards were compromised in Target stores nationwide. If you shopped in a Target store during this period and used a St. Simons Bank & Trust debit card please call us and we will assist you with cancelling your old card and ordering a new debit card. We will also be contacting customers if we determine their card was affected and needs to be cancelled.
In addition, we have learned that Target Red cards may have been compromised. These cards use the customer's checking account information for payment purposes. If you have a Target Red Card that withdraws the purchase amount from your checking account, we recommend you closely monitor your account for unauthorized activity. Contact us immediately if you see unauthorized ACH transactions. To contact Target about your Red Card please call 888-755-5856.
