Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is warning consumers to monitor more than just their credit card statements in the wake of big data breaches at Target and Neiman Marcus stores.
Madigan, along with Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen, is leading a multi-state investigation into the Target breach.
Target revealed in early January that names, addresses, and phone numbers were among the information stolen, increasing the risk of identity theft.
In the wake of a massive data breach committed against the Target retail store chain, con artists may be targeting victims of the scam in Missouri and elsewhere.
