so what should you do if you used your card in home depot?


I heard this " Credit monitoring (from home depot) will not protect you from fraudulent charges made with stolen CC data. Stolen credit card info cannot result in identity theft either since it does not include SSN and DOB. As such, the offered credit monitoring is nothing more than a PR stunt."

Perhaps I missed this story: Police Arrest Illegal Aliens With Ties To Massive Target Credit Card Breach - Top Right News? But this is what we want to hear about the Home Depot theft. We want to know that government, our corporations and security are doing their jobs.

Home Depot breach totals: 56 million credit cards exposed, $62 million in losses | Naked Security

In Home Depot Breach, Investigation Focuses on Self-Checkout Lanes — Krebs on Security

And no surprise...

"Speaking on condition of anonymity, several employees from Home Depot’s security team said that the company had been repeatedly warned about the security of its sytems, and that the warnings stretched back to 2008"

Home Depot data breach - 'warnings ignored since 2008?

Apparently Home Depot doesn't do background checks on employees

"Joe Mitchell was hired by Home Depot in 2012, and in March of 2013, he was promoted to the position of Senior Architect for IT Security at Home Depot, in charge of the entire company’s security architecture. In May of 2014, Mitchell was convicted of sabotaging the network of his former employer."

A lot of people want to make such a check illegal.

Those people are idiots.

I used my CC in Home Depot Bonita Springs Fl Saturday, my brother in a Valley Stream NY Home Depot and his boss in another - all on Saturday 09/27. All three CC's were jacked this week. Coincidence?
Cash Only for that place from now on.

It doesn't do much good to go cash only for a business after a breach, and it's pretty likely that places where you continue to use your card will have a breach down the road. Unless you switch to cash everywhere it isn't going to help.
