Attorney General Updates PA Consumers on Target Security Breach
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane cautioned consumers who may have been victims of the security breach at Target to only deal directly with Target or her office with concerns about their personal information.
Initially, Target announced that the credit card information of about 40 million customers had been stolen. Last week, the retailer announced that contact information, including names, addresses, email addresses and telephone numbers, were compromised for 70 million customers. Target will provide all customers, including those directly affected by the breaches, a year of free credit protection services.
