What does it mean "if you believe your bank may have been one of the unnamed other banks"?

Are banks not held accountable for reporting breaches to their customers in the U.S.?

In otherwords the US hacked its own banks to extort its own people, but we will conveniently throw the blame on the ruskies, to direct public anger at them instead of our own assinine gub'mint, so that WHEN our own assinine gub'mint decides to go toe to toe with the ruskies, there will be public support, and not outrage. That's politics for you... screw your own people AND turn it to your foreign policy / war mongering advantage. Almost Romulan in its cunning.

Actually, we should not have to do jack here. There are consumer protection laws that make it so that ANY fraudulent charges on credit cards, the consumer cannot be held responsible for. This is all on the banks, where it should be.

Right.... unless there is a major series of fraudulence using a vast amount of that data.... then I have 3 words for you, 2008 bank bailouts.

I have some words for you: LET THEM FAIL! These idiots have been extremely lax on security issues for a long time now. There are numerous things that they could do (such as being skeptical of purchases made out of a person's known home state/country and being skeptical when a person is applying for a new credit card from a different address than the big 3 credit companies have on record) that would basically prevent 90% of the fraud.
