The first federal lawsuits are now being filed over the massive data breach at Target. Three Minnesotans are among those who say the Minneapolis-based company put them at risk. The company confirmed last week that someone had stolen credit and debit card information from as many as 40 million Target shoppers. The thefts went undetected for more than two weeks.
Target is trying to reassure its customers in the wake of the retailer’s massive data breach. Someone stole 40 million credit and debit card numbers between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.
Minnesota’s tax man is making it easier to pay by credit or debit card, saying a new payment system that goes online July 1 will be convenient for taxpayers.
The stores are busy this weekend — but one in three people still plan to do part of their holiday shopping online this year. But you then run the risk of getting scammed.
