Commonwealth Community Bank has been recently alerted to a merchant data breach at a US Merchant. All affected cardholders will receive notification in the mail. As a precaution, new cards have been ordered for the affected cardholders. Existing cards will be left open until the new cards have been received, but in order to reduce the exposure to our customers and the bank, debit card limits for the affected cards will be drastically lower than normal debit card limits.
