Shopped Target This Season? Your Personal Info Has Been Stolen.Post: Nathan
If you shopped at Target between Thanksgiving and December 15th 2013, your information has been stolen. Make sure you do something about this A.S.A.P. or you may have a big Holiday Headache coming.

Read one of many stories here

Just a suggestion:
Instead of calling your bank and telling them your fears or having to watch your account to see if anything happened. I find this a very simple fix. Call your bank, tell them you lost your ATM/Credit card (this would be the one used at Target) and request a replacement. This will stop your old card number instantly and they will send you a new one for free no questions asked. I would not try to explain it to them as they are a business and will try to save money by easing customers minds and try not to replace cards. My opinion is my mind is at ease when I control my finances not some bank.

Next, if you receive an email from Target or from your bank, CALL them to see what the issue is and DO NOT click on any link telling you to take care of the issue etc. as this is potentially the hackers who have your email trying to get more info.

Just my two cents, thought I would share, good luck everyone, and do not be a Target. Sorry had to say it.
