Killeen Herald: Texas Partners FCU to Replace Hacked Cards
Monday, January 6, 2014 6:55 AM

Texas Partners FCU is among several local credit unions and banks that are in the process of issuing replacement debit and credit cards to prevent the unlawful use of the original cards after Target’s data breach earlier this month, reports the Killeen Herald.

“We have been proactive,” said Shelley Carlson, Texas Partners FCU’s director of marketing. “We have been closing out debit cards and reissuing them out for those members who have been compromised.”

By ordering replacement cards, Texas Partners FCU and others are preventing access to accounts that have those credit or debit card numbers.

Target Corp. officials said earlier this month that cyber-criminals, who hacked their way to about 40 million customer credit and debit card accounts between Nov. 29 and Dec. 15, accessed “strongly encrypted” PIN information.

Still, the retailer said Friday it remains “confident that PIN numbers are safe and secure.”
