Target involved in another identity theft incident

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Retail giant Target may have created more targets following a massive data breach.

After data on some 110 million customers was lost, the company offered free identity theft protection from Experian.

The problem: Experian also had a data leak and unknowingly sold personal information on millions of Americans to a crook in Vietnam.

That data was then sold to identity thieves around the world. It wasn't until U.S. secret service agents alerted Experian that the company stopped.

Target and Experian insist the two incidents are unrelated.
