Target Customers Seeing Red Over Store’s Credit Card Response- Source: ABC News

Maybe you've heard? Target Department Store was hit by hackers, last week; stealing over 40 million debit/credit card accounts from Target's Customers. Target did respond to customers, but many were not happy at all. 

Tip: Always safeguard your credit card information. Do not discard your receipts, and statements. If you don't wish to keep them, throw them away at home; and perhaps, even run them through the shredder.

Debit Cards: Do not share your pin with anyone except those whom need to have it; a well-trusted and close family member or spouse. When making purchases at a point-of-sale terminal, (in-store cash register), do not allow anyone to see your pin. Be discreet. Enter your pin with your opposite hand covering terminal, or turn terminal so you are the only one facing it.(People could be lurking around, watching you, and following you, just to get your information.)

More Security: Have you ever heard of an Electronic Security Wallet Protector? You may not know the latest hacking techniques, but, hackers and credit card thieves are finding more and more unique ways to commit identity theft, and steal your information. Apparently, they can use an RFID scanner to scan your credit card information; now, as long as you are in proximity of a satellite tower. They can, then use your information, without even needing the physical card.
There are security measures you can take.

Credit Monitoring-It may also be a good idea to check your credit reports for suspicious activity. You can use any of the Credit Monitoring Services: Equifax, Experian ,TransUnion,
Small Businesses:

On an immediate and low-scale level, check your credit card/bank statements. If you have online banking, you can log into your accounts, daily, and check your accounts. You can also setup mobile/email alerts, that will alert you of any real-time account changes. (Just check with your bank, on how to go about setting up these free services).
If you notice anything unusual about your accounts; unexpected charges/withdrawals, and even deposits, contact your bank's fraud department immediately. (I believe this department is open 24/7)

Internet Security-As always, it is suggested that you do not leave your computer unprotected. Hackers and thieves are just waiting to access your information. I have provided a list of  Internet Security Products for you to choose from.

If you already have Internet Security, be sure that your program is up-to-date; automatic and real-time scanning is recommended, as well as scheduling scans on a weekly basis.

Last, but not least:
