MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The Mid-South Better Business Bureau is warning consumers could face still more scams following that massive data breach at Target Stores.
The Bureau’s Nancy Crawford says scammers will now use the case as a backdrop to reach out to people by phone and email.
"Something this highly publicized makes the opportunity great for scammers to take advantage of this and pretend to be from Target, or a bank or credit card issuer, phishing for your personal information."

Approaching his mid-60s and well into his second career after retiring as an airline pilot, Memphis’ Ed Owen decided to tackle another challenge in life — an advanced degree.
Owen wanted to go back to school at age 64 to pursue his master’s degree at Middle Tennessee State University. But with a wife, Mary, and a full-time job as flight simulator instructor for Memphis-based corporate giant FedEx, commuting to class wasn’t an option.
So he chose the comfort of his own home nearly 240 miles from Murfreesboro and joined the Blue Raider educational community online.
