Another metro-area bank is taking action after the massive Target security breach exposed the personal data of millions of shoppers.

In a letter dated December 26th, American National Bank says there have been no reports of a breach of their cardholders.

"But because your security is top priority for us, we are taking the proactive step of closing your current Visa Debit Card and ordering a replacement," reads a letter sent to one WOWT 6 News staffer.

The letter advises that affected, current cards will be cancelled in late January, as new cards will be sent out.

"Be sure to contact any merchants you have set up to automatically debit your card [...] and provide them your new card number as soon as possible to avoid any disruption in service," reads the letter.

In an online notice, the bank reassures customers that only Target shoppers were compromised, not financial institutions.

"Your confidential information with us continues to remain secure."
