Identity Theft Warning
Have you received a credit or debit card receipt that shows the expiration date or more than the last five (5) digits of your card number?
Identity theft is one of the biggest problems facing Americans. To combat this problem, Congress passed the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA), which sets forth regulations to assist in the prevention of identity theft and credit and debit card fraud. Specifically, merchants and vendors must not disclose identifying information that enables thieves to hack into customer accounts.
The law states No person that accepts credit cards or debit cards for the transaction of business shall print more than the last five digits of the card number or the expiration date upon any receipt provided to the cardholder at the point of sale or transaction.
The law provides that with each willful violation of FACTA, violators are liable to each victim, in the statutory amount of not less than $100 and not more than $1,000, for each violation. If you find an example of this violation, you may be rewarded for bringing attention to the problem and changing the company’s policies regarding the disclosure of this personal information.
