Hagens Berman Investigates Credit Card Data Breach At Target Stores

Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP, a consumer-rights law firm, today announced it is investigating a massive breach of customer data from Target Corporation (NYSE:TGT), following the retail chain’s announcement of unauthorized access to millions of credit and debit card numbers.

On Dec. 19, Target confirmed that the breach included customer names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and three-digit CVV security codes for approximately 40 million accounts used to make purchases at Target stores throughout the United States between Nov. 27, 2013, and Dec. 15, 2013.

Hagens Berman seeks to discover whether Target took sufficient measures to guard sensitive customer data, and whether Target’s data policies and practices put consumers at heightened risk of identity theft.

“Any time such complete credit or debit card data is compromised, the account holder is put at serious risk of identity theft and often must spend significant time and money to protect themselves from fraudulent transactions in their name,” said Tom Loeser, a Hagens Berman Partner and former federal prosecutor in the Cyber and Intellectual Property Crimes Section of the U.S. Attorneys Office in Los Angeles. “While it’s commendable that Target is now working with the proper authorities to investigate who may have stolen 40 million customers’ account information, we are investigating whether this enormous breach could have been avoided in the first place if Target had taken adequate and good-faith measures to protect its customers’ data.”

Concerned consumers who made purchases at Target stores during the affected period are encouraged to contact a Hagens Berman attorney by emailing Target@hbsslaw.com or calling (206) 623-7292.
