Cards Used at Target May be Compromised
A breach of credit and debit card data may have affected as many as 40 million shoppers who went to Target stores between November 27 and December 15. This does not affect online purchases.
We encourage you to check your United Credit Union account to determine if you used your MasterCard Debit card between November 27 and December 15 for a purchase at Target. If you did and would like your card blocked as stolen, please contact the Credit Union at (712) 322-0841 or (800) 234-5354 to have a new card issued ($15 per card).
Remember, if you are diligent about balancing your checking account, you can report fraudulent charges 60 days after your statements are received.
Please be assured that we are aware of the breach. Also, as a reminder, please do not provide any account information if you receive an unsolicited email or phone call regarding this breach.
Are Your Account Beneficiaries Up to Date?
As you review your accounts, take some time to check that each of your accounts has a current beneficiary listed. If a beneficiary is not listed, you are guaranteeing that your assets will be submitted to months, perhaps years, of scrutiny while others decide how to distribute any assets.
Contact a Credit Union Representative to ensure that all of your accounts have a beneficiary listed, as well as completed signature cards.
