Was Your Credit Card Account Compromised In Recent Hacking Attack?

The computer systems at Global Payments, Inc were recently compromised by hackers. Global acts as a third party service provider to MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. As of March 31, 2012, no one is quite sure if any card information was stolen or will be used. Here are a few things to look for that may cue you that your account has been hacked.

The most obvious is a charge that you do not remember making. The next is recurring small charges that you may have made once, but do not think should appear every month.

As an added protection you may want to pull your credit report. If enough information was gleaned, the hackers may be able to open new lines of credit that you will remain unaware of until they are negatively affecting your credit.  We’ll update you at the Utah Debt Consolidation Blog if we hear any more news.
