    Should we be proactive and replace cards that have been used at Home Depot?

    • Calvin Weaver says:

      Hi Matthew. Thank you for the question.

      We would not recommend replacing your cards at this point. As always, you should monitor your accounts closely for charges that are not yours and make sure to report any suspicious activity immediately to your card issuer. Since your card issuer assumes liability for fraudulent activity on your card, however, they may re-issue your card if they feel your account is at risk.
