COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- "It's very scary."
Buyer beware - a new warning for Target customers. Carrie Kerski, an identity theft expert based in Naples, said the situation is quickl getting more dangerous.
"They can do a lot more damage with that information," said Kerski.
WINK News is learning Target plans to offer free credit monitoring to customers, but it hasn't said when. Kerki said that's not enough.
"It's not going to be on the look out for duplicate drivers license, or fradulent use, or selling of your information online like your email addresses and phone numbers."
Her advice: don't just keep an eye on your bank accounts. Also search your name on the Internet to see if your name is being used fraudulently. WINK News spoke to a new victim, Gary Bogan, who said his credit card company alerted him.
"They said my card was used to order a Domino's pizza in India. It was also used 60 times on the Internet to order products, which really scared me," said Bogan.
He's called Target several times and feels they're giving him the run around.
"They don't seem as concerned as they're acting like they are."
And the worry is far from over. Kerskie expects customers to soon see e-mails from scammers.
"Often it will have a link on it and if you click on that link it will install malware into your computer, which will allow that person to have complete control over your entire computer from any location."
Kerskie said if customers receieve any emails from Target, don't open any links and delete it immediately.
