In 2003, Congress enacted the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA). One provision of FACTA was an attempt to reduce identity theft whereby if you buy something with your credit card, the vendor CANNOT put your credit card expiration date on the receipt. They also cannot put more than the last 4 digits of your credit card number on the receipt. [u]If they do either of these things, the consumer is entitled to anywhere from $100 and $1,000 per violation.[/u]
I am working with some other attorneys on these types of cases. We're suing big chain stores that should know better. Please look at your old receipts and any of your new receipts. If the receipt contains your expiration date -or- more than 5 digits of your credit card number, please contact me at andrew (at) bizerlaw.com It is very possible that we can get you some money.
