December 24, 2013.   There was unauthorized access to Target Corporation's payment card data. Any credit or debit card used in a Target store in the United States between November 27 and December 15 may have been compromised. This was one of the largest data security breaches in history, potentially effecting more than 40 million people. It was reported that the information compromised included name, card number, and expiration date. At this time, it is unclear whether Personal Identification Number (PIN) information was compromised.

In order to prevent potentially fraudulent activity, Middlesex Federal Savings has taken the following actions to protect our customers, which may have been impacted by this event.

  • We have contacted customers whose Middlesex Federal Savings debit cards were used at a Target store between November 27 and December 15.  As a precaution, we disabled all card functions except for ATM access and reissued replacement cards to those individuals.

  • Customers receiving replacement debit cards have been encouraged to activate their new card and select a new PIN as soon as possible; as all potentially fraudulent cards will be deactivated. 

While we believe that we contacted all customers who were impacted, if we did not contact you and you are questioning whether your card is at risk, please call our Customer Service Department at 617-666-4700.

If we are closed and you suspect your card has been compromised, lost, or stolen; call the Hot Card Lost and Stolen Services Department at 1-800-264-5578.

We recommend all customers review their account activity on a regular basis and notify our Customer Service Department at 617-666-4700 of any suspicious transactions
