Target Data Breach

As you are probably aware, there was recently a data breach at Target. Target says that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been affected by a data breach that occurred just as the holiday shopping season shifted into high gear. The chain said that accounts of customers who made purchases by swiping their cards at terminals in its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have been exposed. The stolen data includes customer names, credit and debit card numbers, card expiration dates and the three-digit security codes located on the backs of cards. The data breach did not affect online purchases. The breach affected all cards, including Target store brand cards and major card brands such as Visa and MasterCard.

Fidelity State Bank & Trust Co. customers will be notified if their Visa Check Card was compromised. As always, we strongly encourage you to review your bank statements frequently and notify the bank immediately if you believe you are a victim of fraud. Additionally, Visa Check Cards issued to Fidelity State Bank & Trust Co. customers include fraud protection by Falcon Fraud Scoring which monitors for potential fraudulent activity.
