This news means that customers must be even more vigilant. Review all your statements carefully for suspicious charges, even small ones, because thieves will often test a card first to see if the fraud is noticed. Do not give personal information such as your card number, PIN, or other data in response to requests from texts, phone calls, or e-mails. South Atlantic Bank will never ask for your personal data via text, phone call, or e-mail. Immediately after news of the breach first broke in December, South Atlantic Bank issued replacement cards to its customers that were impacted, which is the best line of defense against fraud.
