     Many are calling this like a real-life Grinch stealing credit and debit card information right before the holiday. The data breach on about 40 million Target shoppers. It's a good reminder to pay close attention your accounts and to take precautions against fraud.

     A lot of shoppers say they frequently use their credit or debit card when shopping at Target stores. It's an easy option most anywhere, but maybe too easy to have information stolen. Local financial institutions say it's a good reminder to protect your information, never giving out numbers over the phone, and be vigilant. Keep a close eye on your account by checking the balance and activity on it often.     

     "Make sure the transactions on that account were ones they did. If they didn't they need to notify their financial institution immediately," said Terry Brahm, CEO of DHCU Community Credit Union.

     "I am definitely going to check to see my credit card statements. A lot of times I don't do that because I just trust it's going to be secure enough," said Heidi Rastetter, a shopper from Geneseo.

      Card owners would not be responsible for fraudulent charges. If you suspect fraudulent activity report it to your credit card companies first and then contact Target as well. That number 866-852-8680     

     You can report cases of identity theft to law enforcement or the Federal Trade Commission.
