Data Compromise at Target Stores
Like many other financial institutions across the country, Langley has received information regarding an illegal data intrusion, which may have compromised cards used at Target Department Stores.
LFCU is working closely with Visa & MasterCard to find out which, if any, members' accounts may have been compromised. If necessary, LFCU will notify those members, and advise them if their card needs to be reissued or if any other action needs to take place with regards to their account.
Please know that LFCU has advanced fraud prevention strategies and mitigation tools in place, tools designed to protect our members and the credit union. Also, please remember that Visa and MasterCard's Zero Liability Fraud Protection will cover members who have any unauthorized signature transactions.
As always, members should carefully examine activity on their accounts. Review your online data through L@ngley Link, as well as your monthly paper or electronic statements. If you see any unauthorized activity, contact us immediately by calling 1-800-449-7728.
