    When you're hit it's personnal, but when you search online about credit card cyber-attacks it is alarming. Not to mention all other attacks concerning our security. Why isn't the government doing anything about it? Enough with the commitee meetings etc. It's time they take action. Maybe it's time to go back to paper and snail mail, unplug the computer.

    So – now that this has happened it's impossible to get through to Target either on line or by phone, to find out any information let alone pay your bill. I sure hope there will be no late fee for late bills. Since they have "everyone" working on it can't they get some extra phone service?? Infuriation...
