Target class action lawsuitHours after the company acknowledged that 40 million customers’ credit and debit card information was lifted during point-of-sale transactions over the past few weeks, Target Corp. was hit with a class action lawsuit over the breach.

In a statement, Target confirmed that data was stolen from credit and debit cards swiped in its U.S. brick-and-mortar stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15—prime holiday shopping season. According to the company’s investigation, customer names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and CVV security codes were compromised. As many as 40 million customers are likely to be affected by the breach.

On Thursday, Jennifer Kirk filed a class action lawsuit accusing Target of breaking California’s unfair competition and data breach reporting laws. She also alleged the company “failed to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature and scope of the information compromised in the data breach.”

According to the proposed class action lawsuit, news of the Target data breach was first published on Wednesday by blogger Brian Krebs, before Target had made any effort to notify customers who may have been affected by the Target credit card theft. News outlets began reporting that the data was likely gathered through the use of software installed on the machines customers use to swipe their credit and debit cards while paying.

The data that was allegedly exposed is known as “track data,” which allows criminals to create counterfeit cards by encoding the credit or debit card information onto any card with a magnetic strip. The Target data breach lawsuit also mentions that the thieves may have captured PIN numbers from customers who paid with debit cards, which could allow them to withdraw money directly from those customers’ bank accounts.

On Thursday, Target posted a notice on its corporate website, confirming that customers’ credit and debit card information had been compromised. The company reportedly took no steps to notify the customers who were affected by the Target credit card theft. “In its December 19 statement concerning the data breach, Target also claimed to ‘have identified and resolved the issue,’ conveying a false sense of security to affected customers,” Kirk says in her class action lawsuit.

Because of the Target data breach, customers are now at risk of identity theft. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) estimates that as many a 9 million Americans are victims of identity theft each year. “Identity thieves can use identifying data to open new financial accounts and incur charges in another person’s name, take out loans in another person’s name, incur charges on existing accounts, or clone ATM, debit or credit cards,” the class action lawsuit says.

Not only are identity theft victims subjected to financial harm, but their identities can also become implicated in fraud. Identity thieves can use stolen data to commit immigration fraud, obtain government identification in the victim’s name, obtain government benefits in the victim’s name, file fraudulent tax returns, and a variety of other fraudulent activities. When personal data is compromised, the victims must constantly monitor their financial and personal records.

Kirk is represented by Tina Wolfson, Robert Ahdoot and Theodore Maya of Ahdoot & Wolfson PC.

The Target Customer Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit is Jennifer Kirk v. Target Corp., et al., Case No. 13-cv-05885, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

    I used my debit card during this time, but I don’t have an issue. This is so wrong Target!

        I usually would not comment on someone’s stupidity but Mikey, are you like a 5 year old? Do you have a severe medical condition or are you brain dead? You need to get an education and start with kindergarten

    • Gary December 24, 2013

      Millions of the cards are NOW on the Black Market, ranging from $20 to $80 a pop…..change your pin numbers..get a new card….don’t wait…right now there are clowns out there that are making small purchases….about $3 or $4 to see what happens…then they will nail ya’s…contact your banks….play it safe..DO NOT WAIT ANY LONGER….I’VE CHANGED MINE….CANCELLED THE THE CARD I WAS USING….I WANT TO KEEP MY MONEY !!

      • Veronica December 25, 2013

        I didn’t use my card in a store, I purchased online a few days before the news broke about the data theft. I wondered how it would effect me and kept listening for info to see if I should cancel my card. I read an article online stating that online purchased weren’t included. We’ll that’s not so… someone made charges to my account both today and yesterday. They use my info at two different gas stations to fill their tanks. Good thing I kept an eye on my account after hearing of this breach, I should have just closed the card out. SMH this is crazy, lesson learned. The thieves are hoping that people are so wrapped up in the holiday that they don’t notice them slowly extracting money from their accounts. Cancel your cards if you haven’t already.

    • jaybird January 7, 2014

      your so right why should any cooperation have to pay anything for not protecting info {acct.#] of people that could into their store an buy! Let me guess you also think George W. was a great President too!!!

    • Chris January 26, 2014

      We only used 1 of our Debit cards at Target, and our credit union still had to issue new cards to us. Plus, they had to completely redo our entire banking account. All because of Targets problem. I declined to “sign up” for that 5% off Target card they were pitching to me every time I entered the store. We declined because when I looked it up on the Target site, they were really asking me to turn over my personal bank account information to “hook up” to that Target 5% off card. Now, we are glad we didn’t sign up for it.

    • Daphne March 6, 2014

      Yes that is what we thought too. Made it all the way to March 2014 then we were hit hard with false charges. The Detective we reported the fraud to said with the millions of people affected, it could take up to a year for some to become victims. If you haven’t changed your cards yet best to be safe and do it now!!

  • Amber Bedortha December 20, 2013

    I used my card at Target on Thanksgiving night, and last week before the breach was announced my debit card was used in France for two purchases of almost $1400. I would be interested in getting in on the lawsuit.

    • Chris January 26, 2014

      I think the entire Target hack has something to do with that Target 5% off card, OR their charge card that may be linked to any one’s bank accounts.

  • John Sniegowski December 20, 2013

    How do I become part of a class action lawsuit? What do I have to do?

  • Lahanos December 20, 2013

    I opened a RedCard account by entering all my personal info at the credit card reader at my local Target store on December 10. I am sure my SSN, DoB, etc. is now floating on the Internet thanks to Target. I definitely want to be a part of this lawsuit.

    • Lynda Greene December 23, 2013

      According to Target website your social sec number was never threatened. We shall see

    • Chris January 26, 2014

      There are just too many “cards’ out there for “too much” junk to buy, etc. It all started with Safeway back in the mid 1990′s. suddenly…..they wanted to gather information on shoppers with that phony “Coupon Savings Card’ they wanted to pitch to shoppers. We put down fake names, phone numbers and addresses–then quit shopping at the Safeway.

  • deelo December 20, 2013

    I want to be part of this suit also..

    • cuzcats December 24, 2013

      I am totally disgusted with Target! Yesterday, I was on the phone with supervisors for more than an hour and a half, and I was in the store to speak to the store manager. No two people told me the same thing, nor did I obtain any help to find out if my card number had been compromised. The only help I received was from my credit card company. Also, Target was not truthful in the information supplied to me. They had their own version of the facts which does not match reality!

  • deelo December 20, 2013

    I have a debit and credit card

    • john December 23, 2013

      Good for you!! So does 99.99% of the population. What do you want, a prize??

  • Tom Rooney December 20, 2013

    I made debit purchases at Target during this time period.

    • john December 23, 2013

      That’s nice, Tom. Thanks for letting us know.

      • Mike December 24, 2013

        John, YOU ARE A DUMMY!!!!

  • Allison December 20, 2013

    I have a Target Red Card that I have used during this time period.

    I would like to be a part of this suit as well, please.

    Thank you!

  • Kelly Stephenson December 20, 2013

    I have used my Debit and my Red Card,Please add me to the list of Millions.who lost Info.

    • Mslee January 7, 2014

      Kelly, The people who published this article will not add you to a list. You have to watch this web site and when they tell you that a class action suit is in the works follow the instructions to be part of it. They do not have enough of your information so that adding your name to a list won’t help.

  • Lois Pilcher December 20, 2013

    My debit card was compromised as well. My main concern is “are these debit cards tied in with your personal information? Dob ssn etc? I definetly want in this lawsuit.

  • Heather December 20, 2013

    My debit card info was taken too! Now I have to cancel my card and change three accounts that I use this card with! I need to know where to call in order to be apart of this lawsuit? I’m very worried I’m mother of two and my husband paycheck is the only money we get we lose that w we might are place to live

  • Cheryl December 21, 2013

    Mine was also compromised. I am leaving the state to visit my daughter for Christmas, and now have to travel with cash, which is never safe these days. I also have to wait 7-10 days, maybe longer due to the holidays, for a new card, change every other account I have because they are all linked to that card….what a pain in the a$$!!!
    I definitely want in on this lawsuit!! Way to go Target…way to screw people!!!

  • Chris December 21, 2013

    Damnit! I would go to Target on the 15th

  • Indy TL December 21, 2013

    1) there has to be “damages” for the lawsuit to proceed, or to join a class action suit. Just shopping at that time frame does nothing.

    2) instead of being lawsuit-happy, let the investigators find out who ACTUALLY did the hacking, then sue them.

    This lawsuit is like my your house getting broken into and my property I loaned to you, stolen. So I sue you instead of the burglar.

    • Chris December 21, 2013

      Target has a responsibility to safe guard our information! Of course who broke into its systems has to pay too!

  • Annie December 21, 2013

    I hope you’re all ready for those 3 dollar checks Target will send you when the lawsuit is over and done with.

    • victoria mcglothen January 3, 2014

      not really sure how much everyone will get. but, I do know most times ppl think class action suit small pay out like $3. I have a friend who was apart of a class action suit against a car warranty company about a year ago. She had forgotten about it. Until she opened her mail box a few weeks ago and there was a check for almost $10,000. She double checked all the information against her policy number and it was legit. She deposited it and it is in her bank account. From now on, I will stop throwing away those class action letters in the trash. If I qualify, I am filling it out. Just my thoughts.

  • Heather December 21, 2013

    My card is cancelled but I would still like to know how to be apart of this lawsuit?

  • CHRISTINE CORBETT December 21, 2013

    Please I want to be apart of this class action law suit. I used my Debit Card and my Target Red Charge Card at the time of this Breach. I did go to my bank and I receive a new Debit Card but as of today 12/21/13 I am not able to get ahold of anyone at Target so I can CANCELL my Target Red Charge Card. They are not letting any of there customer service reps talk to there customers.

  • Angry December 21, 2013

    I also used my CC at Target at that time. I travel for a living and am not able to access my account for weeks at a time. Now I have to have a new CC sent overseas and reset my accounts, auto payments etc. I’d like to join the lawsuit!

  • Pat Turner December 21, 2013

    I used my Red Card during the time period indicated and I would like to get into the class action lawsuit. Since Target is doing NOTHING for us, we have to do things for ourselves. 10% off some purchases for 2 days is a joke.

  • Ryan December 21, 2013

    Yes, I just had a $600 out of state charge appear on my card. How do we get in on this lawsuit?

  • willow December 21, 2013

    I had a $300 charge from California appear on my card…and I’ve never even been to California. How can I participate in this lawsuit?

  • krystal December 21, 2013

    i used my card at target in texas, two days later there were three different charges, in three different states on my account.. luckily my bank was fast in catching those charges before they posted.. but i was without my card and account for a few days.. has anyone received any information on what’s involved with this class action lawsuit? (what would it take to join/what’s involved/what kind of proof do you need?) Thanks in advance.

  • nicolekemna December 21, 2013

    the million dollar question…what do i need to do to join this lawsuit?

  • Bristolbob December 22, 2013

    I very rarely shop at Target because I just like WalMart better. But just my luck I shopped there for the first time in years on December 2nd and used my credit card. I canceled my Citi Bank card and they are issuing me a new one.They said they were going to overnight it to me but still haven’t got it yet. It will probably be the usual 8 10 business day wait. But at least the thieves don’t have my number. Neither do I for that matter of fact.

  • Nikki December 22, 2013

    I shopped at Target in December twice and would like to be included in the class action suit. How do I go about that?

    Thanks for the information.

      The typical dumbing-down of American.

      • Joe December 24, 2013

        Maybe he’s horny, then he would indeed need to “Get On Broad”, unless he’s queer, then he’d be taking up the rear!

      • carla iyer January 1, 2014

        John, I love your comments. Keep up the great work

  • Steven December 22, 2013

    Shopped Target in store. I would like to file for the class action law suit as well. Who is going to pay for my credit monitor because of this issue?

    • john December 23, 2013

      You pay. It’s your credit; it’s YOUR responsibility to monitor it.

      • Doug December 25, 2013

        John,

        I also closely monitor my credit accounts, a good practice for all of us. But in a case like this, the company that was breached should offer to assist those that don’t as actively monitor their accounts.

        I believe Target has offered credit monitoring to in this case, as they should.

      • David December 27, 2013

        john,im sorry that your wife cheated on you,not to mention all the gang bangs she did,but stop acting so hateful online unless you have the guts to give out your address,which little pussies like you never have.maybe thats why your wife would rather have sex with other men,lot of ‘em

  • Bob December 22, 2013

    I was as well affected by this, went to go Chrsitmas shopping . Guess what, I have the money but Chase has put a limit on what I can buy at one time. is it possible that this will include people in states other than California?

    • Kim December 23, 2013

      Yes, my Chase acct in CT is also limited. $100 cash per day and $300 in spending. I had a $37 charge when I tried to check out at the grocery store declined yesterday. Luckily I had another way to pay! I’ve canceled my card and will be waiting 7-10 days to get a new card. Unfortunately there are no branches of Chase locally to go “cash a check”. Target should have invested more of their huge profits in IT security. They have a responsibility to protect consumer information.

      • Devon December 23, 2013

        I’m in your shoes too- a chase customer with the same limits. Ugh.

    • Devon December 23, 2013

      Absolutely. It’s a nationwide breech.

  • kathleen decker December 22, 2013

    I was in Brockton due to my dads death I went to target a lot I live in florida never go to target his company account in concern

    • john December 23, 2013

      How about using a “period” in your sentence once in a while???

      • Kim December 23, 2013

        How about you recognize that Target makes millions from uneducated buyers and stop personal attacks — or better yet, go back to work — I’m guessing its at Target??

        • Annie Ware December 24, 2013

          I recently ordered a pair of cowboy boots for my granddaughter at Targets. I realized I had ordered the wrong size once I reviewed the order. I called and asked them if they could exchange the size 6 for size 5 the service representative told me it was too late to change the sizes, but she could cancel the order and I could reorder the correct size. Well I got two sets of boots sizes 5 and 6. I called make to complain they told me to take it back to the nearest Target Store. I did and what they told me was they could not put it back on the card I ordered it from but they could give me a Target gift Card. This forces a customer to have to spend their money at that store. And yes my debit card was compromised and I am going to have to change my account, I can’t do it right away because I have bills that I used my card that have not cleared.

  • Jennifer December 23, 2013

    I was affected 2 weeks ago… Someone bought a 100 dollar gift card from Starbucks and opened an account and placed an order with 1-800PETMEDS. Thank god I caught it and notified my bank right away. The card is cancelled but I would like to join this class action lawsuit! I’m out all this money until my bank refunds me!

  • nancy bryan December 23, 2013

  • Devon December 23, 2013

    I shopped during this time and my info was stolen and used. My account is now frozen until the fraud department can sort it out. Really bad timing with holiday shopping and travel. I want to be a part of this suit.

  • Judy Stevens December 23, 2013

    I am stressed now, as My bank Chase said my debt card was compromised, and I also used my target card, plus other major credit cards at Target, I want to know how to get in this lawsuit. I am afraid they will steal my idenity.

  • Mel December 23, 2013

    After Attorneys “settle” their fees, and potentially 40 million folks are looking at restitution, you might get a Target Gift Card for $5.00, if you are extremely lucky. I recall a billing error by a Utility that ran into the millions. They settled a suit and because I was a customer I received a $5.18 credit out of hundred of millions overcharged. The only winners were Attorneys, they get their cut on the gross, which averages about 40% in most action suits. Most likely all petitioners will be combined into one negotiated or ordered settlement. Remember this, most of our Representatives elected to Office are Attorneys, that might say something. The rest of us seem to wait for that “Holy Grail” of an action or personal injury suit to provide us with a fat settlement check, whether we were harmed in some way, or not. That helps explain why this country is prone to hair trigger litigation and nuisance lawsuits over nearly every issue that presents itself. Most folks would be surprised to find out how much personal information about themselves is floating around on the internet regardless of this breach.

  • Felecia December 23, 2013

    I used my Red Card twice during the time period to purchase household items like Tide, I want to be apart of the Class action suit, Target should inspected for glitches in their security systems prior to Black Friday.

  • Lori singer December 24, 2013

    My bank limited my debit card transactions and atm wowithdraws during the most busy shopping time of the year, because my card information was one affected in this target breach! I want to be in the class action lawsuit!

    Used both my debit and credit card at Target during this time that accounts were compromised. I cancelled and ordered new cards but have to wait 10 days. I am still afraid that my info is out there, I need to be a part of this lawsuit. Target has lost my business for good.

  • David B. December 24, 2013

    I canceled my debit card and ordered a replacement. I do not trust Target’s or my bank’s assertions that they will keep me safe. I will be using cash and check only in Target from now on. I wonder if people outside the State of California may join the lawsuit when it gets certified as a Class Action? Apparently we are two years away from switching to a move secure system that Europe has used for a decade. What’s taking us so long?

  • Edward M Ruiz December 24, 2013

    Nothing is safe any more period!

  • Bill T December 24, 2013

    I’ve audited ATM & POS systems for years. I cannot believe that a retailer the size & scope of Target could have been so lax in it data security measures that it violated standard protocols and allowed this breach. If this had been a hack into stored sales records of credit card transactions only (see TJMax, etcetera.) it would have been bad enough. The fact that debit card transaction records on the fly were captured is beyond inexcusable. The weakness may be illegal on the part of target itself. We have been forced to surrender one debit card and obtain a new one. We are daily monitoring a credit card account. I hope that a means for joining the class action will be published soon. Merry Christmas to all – well, except Target management and IT department. They have become the emblem of GRINGITUDE!!

  • maria olivero December 24, 2013

    I went to Target on Friday and have the same problem that I was able to get a straight answer and I was not able to use their target card so instead I have to use my ATM card which I didn’t want to do but I had all the stuff on the register already thank you.

  • Peggy Bogran December 24, 2013

    This affected me . I used my card at target during this time frame as a customer.of
    Chase bank they limited us to 100. Per day for withdrawal at ATM and 300 a day on purchases which is a inconvenient around Christmas time. I tryed to withdraw from t ATM for300 AND was denied then tryed 200 same thing I was able to take out 100
    I didn’t know at the time why.I couldn’t take out more until the next day what was going on. I want to thank Chase bank for t heir prompted attention to make sure.our accounts were safe even if it was inconvenient to some of us like me

  • Vickie December 24, 2013

    My husband’s social was stolen he has never lost his social. A man bought his social in a Wal-Mart parking lot for $75.00. We have the man’s name filed a police report gave the police everything but the Johnson co. in Kansas attorney let him go! The police told us they arrested him but they released him. The IRS knew that he was using my husband’s social but they said that they knew that it wasn’t my husband. We found out about the IRS knowing that this man was using his social cuz the police needed a statement from them. Why The IRS didn’t let my husband know as soon as they knew we don’t know. I had to call the IRS a few month’s later and I said something about this person and they said they always contact people when they know someone else is using their social. That was a lie! My point is that nothing was done about this by the police or the IRS.

  • jennie December 24, 2013

    This could happen anywhere, Should go after your credit card company for putting all your information on the strip on the card. So out dated, neither the banks or the retail stores want to pay to update the security system to protect the consumer. We use the oldest system ever. Should be a micro chip.
    I just say why let any of them make any money off me in interest…….. I just PAY CASH!!!!! SO SAFE!!!!
    Or better yet money of the future…. “BITCOIN”… no need for banks.

  • Chriss December 24, 2013

    This explains a lot of what I have noticed up at my Target store. For months (around Back To School) time…Target kept bugging me to sign up for that “Get 5% Off” all of my purchases. I took the paperwork home, and looked it over, and noticed that Target really just wanted to “link to my checking account”. This made me nervous so I din’t do it. Then suddenly…around Thanksgiving Day time….Target “stopped bugging me” ???? Now, I KNOW why. I think the people who got those Target 5% Discount Cards are the 41 million people they are talking about on the news. I have heard several news stories and Target always “avoids” saying anything about the customers all being Target 5% Off Discount Card holders.

  • blobby December 25, 2013

    What if I bought $1000 worth of Target gift-cards for stocking stuffers during this time period?

    • Yunna January 2, 2014

      Then, I think you should be able to prove it with your bank account info, relax and don’t worry that much. Then ask your bank account to give you a new card.

      • Yunna January 2, 2014

        Oops, I meant to ask your bank to give you a new card ;)

  • Thomas Gricus December 25, 2013

  • Rhonda December 26, 2013

    I use my debit card often at Target I haven’t had any problems as of yet. I check my account everyday but it is really annoying that I have to keep checking my account hoping nothing comes through on my card until I can make it to the bank to change my account or my pin number. I would like to be included in this class action law suit. Target should learn from this to protect people’s identity better from now on.

  • Dee December 27, 2013

  • Rita December 30, 2013

    I only bought some toilet paper and spent like $4. and used my card. It would be crazy if I got in all kinds of trouble because of it!

  • Yunna January 2, 2014

    My husband had to get a new debit card about a week ago, because of that. His bank account was charged by some random facility from CA, for $30 total (3 times different amount of total of $30 in 3 days in a row). That was really strange and nothing we had to pay for! Back then (about 2 weeks ago) we didn’t know what’s going on, but they told him in the bank that Target was hit. We did buy something at that time of period, I just can’t remember what now. Don’t think still have the receipt, either. Duh… it’s always this way. But I am sure we can pull up some info from the bank account just in case if we need to prove.
    Suggestion to others who purchased anything from the Target in that period, to change the card as soon as possible. I wouldn’t wanna find out one day that my card can not be accepted for some strange reason…

  • Amy g January 4, 2014

    Please send me info on how to join the lawsuit. My debit/charge card was compromised and pin number was changed. They withdrew over $300 several times from the ATM (which I can nit even do) went to the grocery store for $150 and Foot Locker For $40. All in not even an hour. I was refunded by the bank but am still waiting for a new bank card to even access my money. This is a mess! I want in!

  • claire stewart January 7, 2014

    sign me up for the lawsuit

  • Deborah Fochler January 7, 2014

    Used my credit and debit card at Target during that time frame. So far no fradulent activity with my cards. But do know Bank of America is closing watching. Have been called twice the last week to verify transactions I made. Wondering if other banks are doing the same. If class action lawsuit continues – will file my claim. No excuse for it. None.

  • Sophie January 7, 2014

    I actually work for Target, and I’m just going to use the name “Sophie.” I’m not using my real name. The supervisors at Target have told us we can’t ask people if they want Red Cards (thank God!) and that we’re not to discuss the issue at all. The execs are definitely hiding something. One of my coworkers who is a high up (also a bit ditzy) told me about Target getting hit with a class-action lawsuit, and I think it’s perfectly fine. The dumbbutt CEO needs to take responsibility for once. I would love to see my store manager get fired or “transferred” to another store. All he does is walks around with his cell phone all through the store ALL DAY. You guys need your money back, and Target NEEDS to take responsibility. There is so much that Target is not telling anyone. I wouldn’t be surprised if they actually went under from this. And to think that they used to place our jobs on how many Red Cards a month we got. If we didn’t give away enough, we would get reprimanded. It’s about time it came back to bite them in the butt!

  • Sophie January 7, 2014

    Oh, P.S. I was just told the other day that the issue was STILL NOT RESOLVED as far as data security with using Red Cards/Debit/Bank cards at Target. So… JUST USE CASH EVERYONE!

  • Pam January 7, 2014

Luck the company the issued the tickets seen a problem and started to refunded the money but I got a call from USAA the day after Christmas at 7AM and asked if I made these transactions I said No. Well after that they replaced my card that day got a replacement the next day. Thanks to USAA they watch what’s going on since for me.. PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP on the lawsuit signup.

  • LISA ELLIS January 17, 2014

    HOW DO WE SIGN UP 4 THIS????

  • Christine January 21, 2014

    Recently my debit card was automatically reissued by my bank because of this issue. I haven’t had an opportunity to really look through my bank statements to see how or if my acct was affected, but was remembering earlier in the month I wanted to pay my bills online like I’ve always done and for some reason couldn’t. I called my bank and was told everything was fine, when I still couldn’t pay my bills in the normal matter that I always had, I had to withdraw cash to pay my bills. Thinking back on it, that incident freaked me out. Honestly this is a ridiculous mistake on targets part and I truly hope the company gets what’s coming to them. As a consumer, I’ve opted to not shop at target for anything ever again. They’ll never see a dime of my money if I can help it. Want in on this is there is an in at some point, and target needs to apologize to it’s customers an make sure that something like this NEVER happens again! SMH

  • robert bishop January 22, 2014

    i had both my target redcard and my bank debit card were both involved in the breach. my bank closed out my bank card ,sent me a new one. target has done nothing. i closed the account and cut the card up , waiting on target to do something,

  • Sophie (Of Target Leakers) January 31, 2014

    An update if everyone doesn’t know about this. Target is back to asking about Redcards again (GROAN), and the prompts are back up on computers for cashiers to ask about. As a result of the issues with the RedCards, many employees jobs were cut and exterminated. I had asked about this to my supervisor the other day, and she confirmed in an email that some people’s jobs were cut because of the financial issue with RedCards. Now, Target is offering a free one-year credit monitoring thing you can opt to sign up for. After that, it’s on the guest to pay it. Personally, I WOULD RECOMMEND NOT TO SIGN UP FOR IT! IF YOU FORGET THAT YOU SIGNED UP, AND END UP SEEING CHARGES, TARGET AS USUAL WON’T CLAIM RESPONSIBILITY. Then Target will be in a pickle again, because of unhappy people. Now, it’s no longer just Target. It is Neiman Marcus, JC Penny, and other stores that this is occurring in, so please be careful with your bank/debit cards. Remember not every area is safe. Use cash if you have it. And don’t opt to sign up for emails or give your phone number or zip code.

    Be safe everyone and best of legal luck to you!

    I just went through this with Michaels. shopping at Kohls, $140.oo worth, card was declined, just got paid. Michaels notified the banks, but didn’t notify the Customers until 2 weeks after, the bank just cut off your card. I’m done with cards, I get cash when I get paid, and mail my bills now, try it, it keeps you in your budget, if your have $50.00, that’s all U can spend., and you’re keeping the post office busy. What does it take a few more minutes to write out checks?? Can’t be more than the 3 trips it took to the bank that Michaels caused.

  • Carol Rock April 8, 2014

    I would like information on taking part in the law suit, also to be contacted by someone here. I was hit 2 times and not happy with it. Target needs to step up to the plate ad fix this!
