Heartland Update: Some St. Mary’s debit cards compromised

Cards that were “low-risk” from Heartland breach recently used for fraud.

Denis Paiste reports:

St. Mary’s Bank is reissuing about 3,500 debit cards it had been monitoring since a security breach at a national processor in January.

“We were told they were low-risk cards, but very recently we’ve been seeing some fraudulent activity,” St. Mary’s Director of Operations Carole Landry said.

The credit union’s Falcon software successfully blocked some attempted fraudulent transactions but about $5,000 in fraudulent transactions got through.
