The massive data breach at Target stores that exposed debit and credit information for millions of shoppers is leading to even more dangers ahead.
Dan Hendrickson, with the Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota, says scammers are using this case as a backdrop when sending out virus-laden e-mail messages.
Hendrickson also says Target is telling those who think they might be affected to be vigilant about their credit and debit accounts.
Hendrickson says with the ever-growing number of identity theft crimes, staying aware of frauds and scams is something folks should do year-round. One resource is the AARP Fraud Watch Network, which offers free alerts, tips, advice and more.
