Alabama Consumer Urged To Double Check Credit History

Alabama consumers are urged to double check their credit card statements and credit histories after an announcement this week by TJX stores of a security breach.

Consumers should do what we normally recommend and closely monitor their statements,” said Belinda McCormick, vice president of the BBB of North Alabama. “They may be at risk and not know it.”

McCormick also said consumers who think that their information might have been stolen can call the three credit bureaus and put a fraud alert on each of their credit card accounts.

The bureaus can be contacted at 800-525-6285 (Equifax); 888-397-3742 (Experian); and 800-680-7289 (Transunion). Consumers also can get a free credit report at or by calling 888-567-8688.

T.J. Maxx has stores in Huntsville in Westbury Square Shopping Center on Airport Road, and Madison Plaza Shopping Center on Old Monrovia Road. Marshall’s has stores in the Valley Bend at Jones Farm center on Carl T. Jones Drive and at Westside Pavillion on University Drive.
