Potential Fraud Alert: Target Compromise Information
On December 19, 2013, Target announced they were involved in a payment card data compromise resulting in the unauthorized access of cardholder information. The compromise may include OE Federal Debit and Visa cards and Target Red Cards that are linked to OE Federal checking accounts. This compromise involves in-store purchases made from November 27, 2013 - December 15, 2013.
OE Federal is monitoring how this compromise may impact OE Federal members and are taking steps to protect our members’ accounts from fraudulent activity.
If you shopped at Target during the compromise timeframe and/or have a Target Red card linked to your checking account, we encourage you to closely monitor your Visa and/or checking account over the next few months and notify us immediately if you find any unauthorized activity.
If you are carrying an OE Federal Debit or Visa card and your account has been identified as being compromised, we will close your current account and reissue you a new account under a new number to protect you from unauthorized charges.
If you have a checking account linked to a Target Red Card and you notify us within 60 days of an unauthorized charge posting to your account, we can assist you in getting your funds back from Target. If you do not notify us within 60 days, you will have to deal with Target directly.
