1. Be aware that Wawa is offering free credit monitoring and identity protection services. You can all to learn more at (844) 386-9559 or click HERE.
2. Contact your bank and ask them to reissue a new card to replace the one that you used at a Wawa within the last 9 months.
3. Check your credit card statements. If incorrect charges were made, it is easier to dispute the transaction if done sooner rather than later.
4. Keep an eye on your credit reports HERE.
5. Depending on your situation, it might be worth your while to put a security freeze on your account. This is one of the best way to stop a scammer in their tracks.
6. THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT -- be aware of fake emails or phone calls about the data breach. Scammers may try to trick people by calling asking for your information to try and "handle" the security breach. Don't fall for it!
Always watch your account because things like this unfortunately happen a lot more often than you would think.
