Target was breached recently. (I won't say hacked because we all know that's when you didn't log out of Facebook and someone else updated your profile with imaginary details)

If you shopped at Target between Black Friday and December 15th, check your bank account or credit card statement carefully. I actually had a bogus $313 charge show up within a week of shopping there the day after Black Friday. My bank cleared it for me, but it took a few days.

Some 40 million credit and debit cards may have been affected. This odes not reach into Canada, since they're on a different system.

Damn... Aint that some ish. I didn't shop there for a while..but this is quite a large breach. I read about this a bit earlier and was trying to figure out how they had our card #, but I guess it makes sense now.

That's no good mate.

My MasterCard was skimmed in Italy last year for a considerable amount.

My card was reproduced with a Bogus signature and was used in two London jewellers to great effect.

I got the money back but it wasn't a good experience.

I have been done once since for a small amount, the drama is that you have to change around everything when this happens.

I keep a close eye on all my accounts now!!!!!!!!!!
