DAI-FACTA Settlement: How to File a Claim
- Class Members can file online (easy) or by mail (less easy)
- An important filing deadline applies to the settlement
- The Settlement Administrator can help answer questions
Any retailer who wants to do right by the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act should omit certain information from its receipts. For example, the expiration date of the customer’s credit card is something that should always be left off. In fact, consumers have filed many class action lawsuits over such acts. One of the latest is a case called Flaum v. Doctor’s Associates, Inc. The case originated over allegations that certain Subway stores printed receptions showing the expiration date of credit cards. Consequently, eligible Class Members can now file for their share of the settlement at the online filing page. Once at the page the Class Member must click the File a Claim button to get started with online filing.
