Bismarck Police are seeing more credit card fraud reports, all of this coming after the data breach at Target.
Target's data breach is affecting over 100 million people in the United States. That includes thousands of customers in North Dakota.
"This is probably the largest data breach that we are familiar with," Director of Consumer Protection Parrell Grossman said.
Grossman says 150,000 North Dakotans may be affected by this data breach.
He also says people who shopped at Target between November 27 and December 15 should be checking their card statements for any suspicious charges
"Target is accepting responsibility for any of those unauthorized charges. Target has actually been very cooperative," Grossman said.
The company is offering customers 1 free year of credit card monitoring if they sign up on www.creditmonitoring.target.com by April 23rd.
Grossman says this will give them daily credit monitoring, identity theft insurance, and help from a fraud agency.
There is another scam Grossman says you should be aware of.
Many sites are claiming to be connected to the Target breach to get customers card information.
"These are targetbreach.com, targetbreach.info.com, targetbreach.net. These are not valid Target web sites...Target believes there may literally be hundreds of these fake or phony web sites," Grossman said.
Grossman says the best thing people can do is sign up for the free card monitoring, watch statements and call the Attorney General's Office with concerns.
Target's Chief Financial Officer will testify to the Senate on February 4th.
This will be the first time the corporation is publicly speaking about the data breach.
