The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) provides in relevant that “no person that accepts credit cards or debit cards for the transaction of business shall print more than the last 5 digits of the card number. . . upon any receipt provided to the cardholder at the point of the sale or transaction”
As alleged, Defendant has willfully violated this law and failed to protect Plaintiff and others similarly situated against identity theft and credit and debit card fraud by printing more than the last 5 digits of the card number and the name of the cardholder on receipts provided to credit card and debit card cardholders transacting business with Defendant. This conduct is in direct violation of FACTA.
Defendant has violated FACTA, and have thereby placed the security of Plaintiff and similarly situated Class members at risk. As a result of Defendant’s unlawful practice of violating FACTA’s provisions intended to safeguard against identity theft and credit and debit card fraud, Plaintiff seeks, on behalf of herself and the Class, statutory damages, punitive damages, costs and attorney fees, all of which are expressly made available by statute.
