Pick-A-Part Receipts FACTA Settlement Notes
- Cirena Torres v. Pick-A-Part Auto Wrecking (d/b/a Pick-A-Part, et al.
- Case No. 1:16-cv-01915-DAD-BAM
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California
In December 2016, Plaintiff Cirena Torres filed this putative class action lawsuit alleging that Pick-A-Part willfully violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) by printing the expiration date of her and other consumers’ credit cards and/or debit cards on their electronically printed customer receipts.
Under FACTA, businesses are prohibited from printing more than 5 digits of a customer’s debit card or credit card number on any transaction receipt. For example, if a receipt has EXP 07/22, EXP 07/2022, or even EXP **/21, the business is in violation of FACTA law. The law’s intent is to protect customers’ from identity theft and so any information printed on a transaction receipt can not lead identity thieves to the actual full credit card or debit card information of the customer.
Pick-A-Part denies that it is legally responsible to Torres or Class members and believes the claims lack merit but has agreed to settle the lawsuit to avoid further litigation. Under the terms of the Pick-A-Part Receipts FACTA settlement, the company will pay $195,000 which will go towards attorneys’ fees and administration costs. The remaining funds will be distributed pro rate (equally) among Class members who submit a valid and timely claim form. It is estimated that each Class member will receive up to $250, but that amount could be less depending on the number of claim forms received.
Complete details are provided in the Class Notice, which is available on the Pick-A-Part Receipts FACTA Settlement website.
