NEW YORK (Legal Newsline) – A New York woman is suing a dishes retailer over claims it prints more than five digits of a card number on receipts.
Joan Pasini, individually and for all others similarly situated, filed a class-action lawsuit Jan. 15 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against Fishs Eddy, alleging violations of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA).
The suit states Fishs Eddy printed more than the last five digits of a card number on transaction receipts, in violation of FACTA.
The suit claims that printing more than the last five digits of a card number makes the cardholder more susceptible to identity theft and credit and debit card fraud.
Pasini and others in the class seek statutory and punitive damages, attorneys' fees and costs of the suit. They are represented by attorneys Taylor Asen and Charles J. LaDuca of Cuneo Gilbert & LaDuca in Brooklyn, New York, and by attorney Chant Yedalian of Chant & Co. in Glendale, California.
