Marion County man has warning for others regarding Target financial breach

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB)---More victims continue to come forward following Target's recent debit and credit card breach.

Nearly 40 million shoppers who used their cards at the store between November 27th and December 15th may have been impacted.

On Friday, the retail-giant announced debit-card personal identification numbers were among the information stolen from customers.

The company says the PINs were encrypted and that this strongly reduces the risk to customers.

But, one local Kentucky man, from Marion County, says in the last few days, his wife's personal identification number was used to remove several hundred dollars from their account.

He says their local bank believes this was part of the Target financial breach

"I kinda wanted to get the story out there to let everybody else know that they still need to watch their cards, and I would recommend getting rid of that card and getting a new one," says Brad Mattingly, from Marion County.

 Security analysts say your PINS are vulnerable and should be changed if you shopped at Target during this particular timeframe.
