Important Information about the Target Security Breach

Target has notified the public of a credit and debit card data breach across the United States. The breach occurred between November 27, 2013 and December 15, 2013 for purchases made inside Target stores. If you shopped Target online, you will not be affected. If you used your Nutmeg credit or debit card between the dates listed, you may have been affected. Please monitor your account closely. If you see any unusual or unauthorized activity on our account, notify us immediately. Contact us at 1.800.526.6933 or 860.513.5000.

The credit union has multiple systems in place to monitor fraudulent activity, but we encourage you to closely monitor your accounts if you shopped at Target during these dates.

We also have an Identity Theft Recovery Program in place for members in the event that identity theft occurs. Members who are protected by this program receive a personal Recovery Advocate. The Recovery Advocate assigned to your case will:

  • provide a customized recovery plan within 72 hours
  • alert the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion)
  • work with all necessary government and law enforcement agencies
  • complete all forms and follow-up on your behalf

If you are not enrolled or are not sure if you are enrolled in this program, please contact us to find out more information. This program covers all your bank accounts and credit cards, not just Nutmeg accounts. This service has helped many members who have been the victim of identity theft recover their identities and repair the damages done. We encourage you to take advantage of this added protection.
