Finally got my Target Visa reported Lost/Stolen!!!!

I used my Target Visa on Thanksgiving day.  It might have a chance to get compromised (data breach). I called Target Card Services all day to report lost/stolen. It was busy. I just through the line and I reported the card lost/stolen thru the automated system. It took only a few minutes.  I will be getting card within 7-10 days.

Hey Ron.  Funny you mentioned this.  I didn't even use my Target Visa during the said timeframe of this breach, they're still sending me a new one...LOL.  I got a confirmation via email.  All my Target shopping was done during early Nov.

Finstar, 

 

I  called to report lost/stolen for safety pre-caution.

Good call indeed - better safe than sorry and then having to deal with the headache of unauthorized charges.

To all:

 

You won't able to get access account to pay bills and check the balances after you report your card lost/stolen. Your online access will be blocked. You'll see the following message:

 

We're sorry. You are unable to sign in at this time. Please contact Target Credit Services at 1-800-394-1829 for assistance.

 

 

Ron.
