Credit Card Data Theft – Are you affected?

As you may know, Korea has just experienced a massive case of credit card data theft affecting over 20 million people. Currently the banks have only sent out messages in Korean to alert customers.

If you have a Lotte Card, or an NH NongHyup Card (again, credit, not debit), you should contact your local branch to get your card re-issued (재발급) in case your data was among that stolen. If you have a KB Kookmin Card, they are not currently reissuing cards, but are warning customers to be careful of voice phishing scams.

Bank account information was not affected, only credit card, so don’t worry if you don’t have one of those credit cards.
