JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- More and more people are getting new credit cards in the mail after their old one was compromised.

If you receive a notice from your bank, take it seriously. Bank of America is now issuing new credit cards to some customers because their account information may have been compromised. The bank is telling some customers:

"We were notified that information may have been compromised at an  undisclosed merchant or service provider ... This does not mean that fraud has or will occur on your account. ... In order to help protect your account, we're giving you a new credit card with a new number."

First For You:

-Sign the new card immediately and destroy the old one

-Review your credit card statement for accuracy

-Pull a copy of your credit reports from annualcreditreport.com

-Contact your bank if you have any questions
