MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Unhappy Target customers have been leaving angry comments on the company's Facebook page.
Some say they will stop shopping at the discount chain after it revealed that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts were stolen as the holiday shopping season revved up.
Target says customers who swiped their cards in its U.S. stores between November 27th and December 15th may have had their accounts exposed. The stolen data includes customer names, card numbers, expiration dates and the security codes on the backs of cards.
Online purchases weren't affected.
Customers are also complaining that they can't get through to the company's call center or get on Target's branded credit card website.
Target says it is adding more workers to field calls and help solve website issues.
