- So a cyber Grinch stole your card at Target? Here's what to do
The Target heist is the second largest, after the TJ Maxx cybercrime that exposed at least 100 million cards in 2007, but it is shaping up to be the most audacious in the checkered history of card fraud, taking place during the top shopping weeks of the 2013 Christmas season. The theft ring apparently intercepted credit card information, including card expiration dates and the CVV security numbers on the back. Credit card companies say they are on the case to ensure that customers don’t have their accounts breached. But security experts say consumers themselves need to check, immediately, any credit card accounts they've used at Target stores to see if the cards have been used by the Target fraudsters to make fraudulent purchases.

- 200 cars stolen in Germany 'now owned by Tajik elite'
About 200 cars stolen in Germany have been tracked down in Tajikistan, where most are now driven by family and friends of President Emomali Rakhmon, media and officials in Berlin said Thursday. The case of the German-registered cars, including 93 BMWs located via their GPS systems, has caused friction between Germany and the Central Asian country, mass-circulation daily Bild reported. The German foreign ministry did not confirm it had called in the Tajik ambassador over the case, but a spokeswoman said "there have been talks with the Tajik side on cooperation in fighting organised crime". The Tajik embassy denied as "completely unfounded" the charge that stolen German cars had ended up with the president's family, saying the claim aimed "to damage the reputation of the nation and the head of state".
