Helpful Tips for Target Shoppers

The recent attack on Target customers is really eye opening when you look at the numbers.

About 40 million shoppers had their credit card information stolen during the busiest shopping days of the years so what should you do to protect yourself?

First, if you think you are a victim of identity theft, the Federal Trade Commission (FCC) says you should contact one of the three credit reporting agencies and place an initial fraud alert. That makes it harder for thieves to open accounts in your name.

Once you have done that, it is recommended to order a free credit report so that you can look at all of the activity tied to your name.

Lastly, you’ll want to create an identity theft report.
