Target security breach: Bottom line is to cancel that card


DULUTH, Minn. — If you swiped any type of credit or debit card at a Target store from Nov. 27 to Sunday, close the card. That’s the advice Dale Lewis is telling customers at Duluth’s Park State Bank. The president and CEO says people shouldn’t take any chances on their financial identity being stolen now or into the future.

“The proper step to take is to close that card,” Lewis said.

Other banks are giving similar advice as they are flooded with phone calls from customers.
