Wegmans Food Market faces Class Action suit for divulging too much information on Credit Card Receipts
Wegmans is facing legal action after failing to conform to the requirements of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), a law passed in 2003 designed to protect consumers from identity theft by limiting the information that can appear on credit card receipts.
The law demands that a credit or debit card receipt cannot reveal more than that last five digits of a purchaser's card, and must not show the expiry date. Violators are subject to paying $1,000 for each infraction of the law.
A US Federal Trade Commission survey has revealed that more than 3.2 million people were victims of identity theft in 2005.
