MIAMI (Legal Newsline) – A Florida man alleges fast food chain Burger King printed more than five digits of debit and/or credit card numbers on customers' receipts.
Andrew D. Tarr filed a complaint individually and on behalf of others similarly situated on Oct. 14 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Burger King Corp., doing business as Burger King, alleging violation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased goods from the defendant's Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, restaurant on April 25 and May 4 using his debit card. He alleges he has discarded the receipts, but believes they stated 10 digits of his debit card account number. The suit states that a previous complaint was filed against the defendant for a FACTA violation during the same time frame.
The plaintiff holds Burger King Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly caused the plaintiff to suffer a heightened risk of identity theft by printing more than five digits of a card number.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant for statutory and punitive damages, injunctive relief, attorney's fees, litigation expenses, costs of suit and further relief as the court deems just. He is represented by Scott D. Owens of Scott D. Owens PA in Hollywood, Florida; Bret L. Lusskin Jr. of Bret L. Lusskin PA in Aventura, Florida; and Keith J. Keogh of Keogh Law LTD in Chicago.
