Frequently Asked Questions
Was my data compromised?
Target is reporting that some credit and debit cards used at Target stores between November 27 and December 15 were compromised. If you did not use your card at a Target store during this timeframe, we do not have reason to believe your card was compromised. We continuously monitor for fraud and if we notice any irregular activity we will individually notify the customer.
What should I do?
Whether you're notified or not, it's always a good idea to check your credit report and be aware of any suspicious activity on all of your accounts. However if you would like us to close your current card, please contact us or visit one of our branches.
Will Brotherhood Bank & Trust be notifying affected customers?
Yes, we will continue to monitor these accounts and notify customers of any suspicious activity.
Has the security breach been fixed?
Yes. Target is working with Visa and MasterCard and law enforcement to ensure no further information is exposed.
What are the chances that I become a victim of identity theft as a result of this incident?
We were informed that there wasn't significant personally identifying information stolen, such as Social Security numbers or addresses, so we believe that the risk of identity theft is greatly reduced. However, it's always a good idea to check your credit report regularly for incorrect information. In fact, you're entitled to one free copy of your credit report every year at www.annualcreditreport.com or by calling (877) 322–8228.
