+ - Major Bank's Credit Card division database compromised

Submitted by realsilly
realsilly (186931) writes "Approximately 2 weeks ago, I received an email from my bank stating they were replacing my Credit Card. Perplexed, I called the customer support number I have stored and spoke with a representative. I was perplexed because I was not due for a new Credit Card. The Representative on the phone stated that the Credit Card Database had been compromised and that a mass card reissue was taking place. Concerned I asked about my other accounts and I was assured I would not be held liable for any fraudulent activities. I began to scour the media for some bit of info on this, and to my disappointment I found nothing. I went to the local branch the next day and explained what I was told, and the Branch representative denied a breach took place and they would be the 1st to know. I still have not seen any news on this breach, and it concerns me that there is a major cover-up going on to avoid mass panic and runs on this bank. I am curious, has anyone else heard of any major Credit Card database breaches? How were you informed?"
