Has a Debit or Credit Card Receipt Subjected You to Fraud or Identity Theft?
To help protect you from credit card fraud and identity theft, merchants are required to follow the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (“FACTA”) and limit what they can print on your receipts.
Under the Act, your debit and credit card receipts should never disclose the expiration date of your credit or debit card. Similarly, the receipts should never disclose more than the last five digits of your card number. Violating these rules is actionable and can result in credit card fraud or identity theft from having too much of your personal information revealed.
If you believe your information was improperly disclosed and that you are at risk of being harmed (i.e. another copy of the receipt exists or existed, the receipt was lost or stolen, you have become a victim of identity theft or credit card fraud, that others have viewed the receipt, etc.), then you may have the right to bring a private cause of action and recover statutory damages of $100 to $1000 per violation.
