The Target Breach and Your First National Bank of Ottawa Debit or Credit Card

As you’ve learned from recent news reports, Target reported that it experienced a data breach from November 27 through December 15, 2013 in which approximately 110,000 debit and credit cards used to make purchases in Target stores were compromised.  Unfortunately, some First National Bank of Ottawa debit and credit cards were identified as at risk because of Target’s security breach.

What are we doing and what should you know?

  • As we are notified by Visa, We are notifying our affected cardholders by mail if their card(s) were compromised.

  • We are ordering new cards to replace those reported as compromised, at no cost to our customers.

  • We are not limiting the use of debit cards reported as compromised during the Target breach.  Existing debit cards are cancelled a minimum of 10 days after the new card is ordered.

  • We request that you closely monitor your checking or credit card account through our free Online Banking service.  Contact a Customer Service Representative if you are not an Online Banking user and would like to be.

Please remember, Visa guarantees zero loss to cardholders in the event of fraud.

Target is offering free credit monitoring for a year for their customers.  Please register for the free service at   https://creditmonitoring.target.com
