Safeguard Your Shopping
The recent data breach of Target has left many consumers wondering how they can protect themselves when shopping. Here are some safeguards to help minimize the risk.
1. When available, pay cash. Any time you don't have to pull out your card is one less opportunity for a hacker to strike.
2. Save your receipts. Observe your receipts while going over bank statements to make sure everything matches correctly.
3. Review your bank statements. Regularly review your bank statements and look for any inconsistencies after making purchases.
