Emailed Important Notice From Target-Possible Virus!

Emailed Important Notice From Target-Possible Virus!

Summary of eRumor:

This appears to be an official email from Target Corporation warning of an unauthorized access to their payment card data center. Customers who made credit card or debit card purchases at U.S. stores between November 27 to December 15, 2013 may have been impacted by the data theft.  The email contains a resource of links to various agencies to assist affected customers.

The Truth:
Target did post an official notice on their website regarding the unauthorized access but TruthOrFiction.Com has not confirmed that the email came from Target.   The version that we got contained links that did not appear to be official links that matched the ones in the official notice.

The warning is real but these emails could be a hoax to redirect computers to a virus infecting website.
Do not click the links in the email.

Click here for the official notice on the Target website with the correct links.
