Target warns of e-mail scams



ATLANTA — Target says it has learned of some incidents of scam e-mails related to its recent data breach and is setting up a section of its corporate Web site to post copies of all official communication.


The company says it is aware of “limited instances” of scam e-mails. Spokeswoman Molly Snyder says the company doesn’t have any other specifics to provide about the fake e-mails.


The Minneapolis retailer says it is creating a section of its Web site to contain copies of Target’s official communication to customers so customers can be sure they are really hearing from Target when they get e-mails from the retailer.


Target said last week that data connected to about 40 million credit and debit card accounts was stolen between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.
