More Trouble for Target Shoppers

The fallout after the Target data breach continues.

The third largest retailer in the nation has announced that PIN numbers were part of the data that was stolen in a recent hack.  Customers who may have used their ATM or debit cards are urged to change their PINs.  You're also being asked to keep a close eye on your statements for any suspicious charges.

There are also worries that scammers might be using these events to steal personal information via email.
