Goner Message Board / ???? / Check Your Credit Card Receipts!
Posted: Jun 26, 2012 10:42 am
 
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.

How many dollars per violation are the attorneys entitled to?

That's a good question. Our intention is to convert an individual lawsuit into a class-action. If it happened to you, it happened to a lot of people. Once the case is converted to a class action, the attorneys fees are something that the Court must approve. If you have any more questions, please email me.

From a settlement perspective, the class representatives (those named as plaintiffs) might get a substantial payment for their troubles. A few thousand isn't unusual. The remaining class members may get a check. Or, the remaining class members won't get paid anything and money will be donated to a worthy cause that all parties agree to. Or, something else. Attorney fees will be negotiated between the plaintiff counsel and defendant counsel and the court will be asked for approval. A period will then open up for challenges / objections to the settlement.
