Credit union takes action on Heartland security breach

January 31, 2009 8:54:07 AM PST
A massive security breach is prompting the North Carolina State Employee's Credit Union to issue new debit and credit cards to its customers.The SECU say the problem is not with the credit union itself. It's related to a security breach at Heartland Payment Systems that potentially affects about 85 million credit card holders at many different banks nationwide.

Approximately 56,000 SECU customers are affected.

The credit union says its sending out the new cards as a precaution and it doesn't mean a customer's account was used for unauthorized activity.

After February 9, all old cards will be deactivated.

Customers are urged to closely monitor their accounts and report any suspicious activity.
