Target Breach of Cardholder Information

Target Corporation has announced that up to 40 million debit and credit cards used at their stores between November 27, 2013 and December 15, 2013 may have been compromised. Thieves were able to get names, card numbers, expiration dates and the three-digit validation code. Online transactions were not compromised, according to Target.

If you used your card at any Target store during this three-week period, please call or visit your local BSV branch office as soon as possible to block your current card and get a new card issued. Debit card holders are asked to visit a branch to select a PIN for the new card.

We strongly recommend that you use NetTeller, Tele-Bank, and/or Mobile Banking to monitor your debit card transactions, and use CardAccess to monitor your BSV credit cards.

If you notice suspicious activity after banking hours on your debit card, call toll-free 1-866-546-8273. For credit cards, call toll-free 1-800-556-5678.
