Bank austin texas
On Sept. 8, 2014, Home Depot confirmed in a press release that its payment data systems have been breached, potentially affecting all its stores in Texas. Home Depot’s investigation is focusing on a timeframe from April 2014 forward.
We, at Citizens Bank, are in the process of receiving information on the accounts that were affected by the breach. As this information is received, we will take steps to protect our cardholders through fraud monitoring and, if needed, by reissuing cards. If you used your Citizens Bank debit card in a Home Depot store between April 2014 and September 2014, you may consider ordering a new card rather than waiting to see if your card was affected.
What other steps can you do to protect yourself?
