TJX security breach.. check

I am not 100% positive or if this just merely coincidence, but I have a feeling my sister has fallen victim to the TJX security breach reported last week. Fraudulent transactions originating in France (of all places) began January 10th, comprosing four withdrawls: $3.90, $1.30, $.04, and $.01. Finally, $120 was debited and my sister caught on and took action.

One of the reasons I like online banking is because it allows me to review my statement (to-date) whenever I need too. I do not have to wait until the end of the month to receive the statement, and had my sister checked her statement online routinely, the last charge may never have happened. I hope no sensitive personal information was exposed besides the bank account numbers.
