It seems that every day, or close, there’s a new report of a data breach at a major retailer.

If you’ve shopped at one of them, you’re right to be concerned about whether or not your information has been compromised.

Most of us aren’t going to stop using credit cards, and deciding not to shop at the affected stores isn’t a guarantee we’d never fall victim to these scams — especially as we enter the holiday shopping season.

Our friends at offer some important tips to protecting your credit cards.

Happy shopping!
