A Message for Members about Account Security


The recent data breach announced by Target at its stores in the U.S. between November 27 and December 15 has created a high number of inquiries from Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union members regarding the security of their credit and debit card accounts.

We want to assure members that your accounts with us are monitored 24/7 by an experienced team of security professionals for any suspicious or potentially fraudulent activity. Mid- Minnesota employs the most advanced fraud detection and prevention technology to guard members’ credit and debit accounts against unauthorized access and use.

Here’s a quick update for your peace of mind:

· We are aware of the accounts that are known to have been used at Target stores on the dates noted above and we are watching the activity on these accounts closely; affected members have been contacted by mail on Dec. 27, 2013.

· Unless you see any suspect transactions on your Mid-Minnesota credit or debit accounts, there is no need to call.

· If our security team observes any unusual activity on member accounts, we will contact members immediately to determine whether the transaction activity is legitimate and authorized.

· It is also a good practice for members to keep a watchful eye on their accounts and transactions and look for any unauthorized activity or purchases.

We will continue to monitor all members’ accounts for suspicious activity. Thank you for being a valued member of Mid-Minnesota Federal Credit Union.

We're with you all the way!
