Is your account information among 100 million possibly exposed after one of the biggest security breaches in history? It happened at Heartland Payment Systems based in New Jersey.
On January 20th the company announced more than 100 million accounts could have been exposed. So far, more than 370 bank institutions have been impacted.
Heartland News has heard from lots of people in Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky saying they got a letter from their bank and now they have to wait for new bank cards.
