On November 6, 2014, Home Depot issued an email to their customers warning
of a possible phishing/smishing scam that may have occurred simultaneously
to the recent payment card breach of their stores.
Some customer email addresses are reporting to have been acquired
during the incident; however, Home Depot has stated that they do not
believe that email passwords, payment card information or other sensitive
information was compromised.
We want to alert you to the possible email breach and caution you
against phony emails requesting personal or sensitive information.
Customers with concerns or that would like more information regarding
the alleged email breach are being asked to visit the Home Depot web
site or call 1-800-HOMEDEPOT.
