Target security breach puts shoppers' information in jeopardy - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

Local shoppers react to Target security breach

(FOX19) -

Target shoppers beware. A Security breach has allowed credit and debit card information on as many as 40 million accounts to be stolen.

"I hope I haven't been targeted, but I do shop here a lot," said Target shopper Brenda Scharber outside of the target in Newport.

"This is my main shopping place," shopper Rebecca Flaming admitted outside the Newport Target.

Target is a major shopping destination for many shoppers, especially during the holiday season.

"It's concerning," said Flaming.

Target says anyone who shopped there between November 27 and December 15 could be impacted by the security breach. 

A spokesperson says the hackers may have gotten their hands on the customer's name, credit or debit card number, the card's expiration date and the three-digit security code, also known as the CVV number.

And while the store says the problem is fixed, they urge shoppers to keep a close eye on statements for any unauthorized charges. It's something shoppers like Rebecca Flaming say they already do. 

"I'm very aware of what I spend.  I check my bank account regularly," Flaming said.

And going into the final stretch of the holiday shopping season, shoppers say the security breach hasn't necessarily breached their trust in the store.

Shoppers say they want to make sure the store hits the mark, and makes things right by shoppers. 

"I'm a shopper. I've shopped all my life. I love to shop and will continue to shop but if we have a problem, I may stop shopping here if they don't get it fixed," Scharber said.
