Following Thursday's news of a data breach at target, the Better Business Bureau is offering some advice.
The breach may have affected customers who made credit or debit card purchases at the store between November 27th and December 15th.
The BBB suggests you look at transactions on your account to make sure there aren't any unknown purchases listed.
They also recommend you check your credit report at least once a year. Be sure you don't access credit report services through links from unfamiliar websites.
Avoid companies that claim they can improve your credit for free and dispute any inaccuracies you see on your credit report.
