email scam

— Target said it has learned of some incidents of scam emails related to its recent data breach and is setting up a section of its corporate website to post copies of all official communication.

The company said it is aware of “limited instances” of scam emails. Spokeswoman Molly Snyder said the company doesn't have any other specifics to provide about the fake emails.

The Minneapolis retailer said it is creating a section of its website to contain copies of Target's official communication to customers so customers can be sure they are really hearing from Target when they get emails 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.
