Navy: Navy Cash/Marine Cash® cardholders protected from Target® data breach

Disbursing Officer, Lt. j.g. Elizabeth Williams, left, and Disbursing Clerk 1st Class Michael Brett, display their Navy Cash Cards in front of a K80 terminal aboard the guided missile cruiser USS Lake Erie (CG 70). The system, which began March 23, 2004, eliminates cash and coins from the entire ship and instead requires Sailors to add money from their personal bank accounts to one of two systems held on the cash card.

WASHINGTON — Navy officials said Sailors and Marines who used their Navy Cash/Marine Cash® cards at any U.S. Target® stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, are not liable for any transactions that occur as a result of the unauthorized access to card data reported by Target® Corporation in December.

Navy Cash/Marine Cash® cardholders affected by the breach are protected by the card networks and Regulation E [http://www.cfpb.gov/], which sets rules, liabilities, and procedures for electronic funds transfers and establishes customer protections associated with using electronic funds transfers.

“We partner with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and its financial agent to manage the Navy Cash/Marine Cash® program,” said Naval Supply Systems Command, or NAVSUP, Commander Rear Adm. Jonathan Yuen. “Data reports show 58 cardholders used their Navy Cash/Marine Cash® cards at Target® stores during the affected period.

These accounts have been flagged and are being monitored for unusual activity.”
Disbursing officers on ships with members impacted by the breach are being notified to issue new cards to affected cardholders.

Navy Cash/Marine Cash® combines a chip-based electronic purse, or stored-value function, with a traditional magnetic strip, or debit card and ATM function. The electronic purse replaces currency aboard ships. The magnetic strip and branded debit features afford users access to funds in their Navy Cash/Marine Cash® accounts worldwide via automated teller machines, or ATMs, and point-of-sale, or POS, devices at merchants who accept debit cards.

Cashless ATMs aboard ship provide 24-hour-a-day, seven-day-a-week access to Navy Cash/Marine Cash® accounts. The cashless ATMs also provide off-line access to accounts at financial institutions ashore and the ability to move money electronically to and from Navy Cash/Marine Cash® accounts and those financial institution accounts.

“We are deeply concerned about the inconvenience the data breach may have caused our Sailors and Marines,” Yuen added. “We take this matter very seriously and are doing all we can to ensure our Sailors’ and Marines’ privacy and information is protected now and in the future.”
