Commerce Bank to re-issue cards after Target credit breach
(KTVI) – Officials at Clayton-based Commerce Bank say they’re joining other banks in re-issuing debit cards to customers who may have been victimized by thieves who compromised cards at Target stores nationwide.
A Commerce Bank official says they detected the Target breach before the retailer came forward and announced it last month. New cards should arrive by mail by the middle of the month.
Commerce wouldn’t say how many cards were re-issued, but said it was similar to the number of cards involved in the Schnucks data breach in the St. Louis area last fall.
