Angry Target customers are having trouble getting a hold of the big box retailer in the wake of the latest credit card fraud scam. Target is apologizing and adding more workers to help deal with call volume and website issues.
A report published by a former Washington Post technology reporter claims online credit card number black marketplaces are flooded with Target customers' data.
The stolen accounts are fetching anywhere from $20 to $100 per card.
The report goes on to say some banks and fraud investigators are buying the numbers back.
Target says data of some 40 million credit and debit cards were compromised between Thanksgiving Eve and last Sunday.
