HOME DEPOT COMPROMISE ALERT
On September 8th 2014 Home Depot confirmed its payment data systems had been breached.
This breach could potentially impact customers using payment cards at its U.S. and Canadian stores. There is no evidence that the breach has impacted stores in Mexico or customers who shopped online at HomeDepot.com. The timeline for this breach is April 11th to September 7th 2014.
The Credit Union has been notified of potentially compromised cards, but we have not yet experienced any fraud from this compromise. We are in the process of determining how best to protect those cardholders.
As always, PLEASE, monitor your accounts and immediately report any unauthorized or suspicious activity on your account. You, are the best defense against fraud!
Home Depot is offering services for those affected. See below.
