Rabobank Replacing Debit Cards Impacted by Target Data Breach

Rabobank N.A. is taking the precautionary step of replacing debit cards believed to have been used by some of its customers at Target stores from Nov. 27 to Dec. 15.

The California community bank’s move follows Target Corp.’s announcement that millions of payment cards were part of a data breach during this period.

As a convenience, impacted Rabobank customers may use their existing debit cards until new ones arrive, and limits on daily purchases and cash withdrawals are unchanged at this time.

“Security and peace of mind go hand in hand,” said John Ryan, CEO of Rabobank N.A. “This move assures our customers that account safety and uninterrupted service are top priorities for the bank.”

For additional safety, Rabobank cards are protected by Zero Liability, which pledges that customers will not be held responsible for fraudulent charges made with their cards.

Rabobank customers can routinely examine and safeguard their accounts in several ways:

» View accounts at for any suspicious or unusual activity.

» Use online banking to quickly and easily enroll in Account Alerts, which sends email or text notifications of account debits, credits and other transactions. Click here for more information.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.
