There have been recent phishing emails and phone calls related to the Target breach. The emails look like they are from Target and play on the fears of the public that they may have had their card compromised.
Proceed with caution if you receive an E-MAIL or TELEPHONE CALL from Target. You should NOT OPEN any links that may be included in these emails as they could potentially allow additional access to your personal information. Target plans to post any and all emails to their breach-related site so its customers will know the difference between valid emails and phishing emails.
