Thousands of people went to one credit union today - to get a new debit card.

This, after the credit card security breach at Schnucks grocery store where more than two million people nationwide had their card information stolen. 

I-H Mississippi Valley Credit Union decided to halt service on all their current debit and credit cards that had been effected. 

Over 3,000 people were sent forms from the credit union - explaining their card might be at risk. 

And starting today - their card would no longer work for any transaction that requires a signature. 

So - a lot of people turned up at the different branches of IH Mississippi Valley today to get new cards issued. 

Many of them saying they are glad their money is safe again and that- even though it was an inconvenience to get a new card - they are happy with the notification they received. 

And according to those at the credit union, there is noting anyone could do to avoid the breach from happening.

"Fraud happens unfortunately," says IH Spokesperson, Laura Ernzen. " And whether you are a member of a bank of any financial institution or a credit union in the area - things like this are going to crop up."

An audit of Schnucks and their security systems showed they had done nothing wrong. 

They were within industry standards for technology.

And even though they have contained the breach, Schnucks is telling customers to watch their bank accounts for at least a month.
