The Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) was passed by Congress in 2003 in an effort to combat identity theft. FACTA prohibits merchants from printing more than the last five digits of a consumer’s credit card number or expiration date on any electronic or printed receipt.
If a merchant discloses excessive information on your credit card receipt, Abraham Kleinman represents consumers from Queens, Westchester and the greater New York area in various debt collection disputes and can hold merchants accountable for their FACTA violations.
Merchants can be liable for penalties between $100 to $1,000 per violation when disclosing excessive credit card information. If a merchant has printed more than five digits of your credit card number on a receipt, you should seek the help of an experienced lawyer in protecting your account and obtaining compensation if your privacy was compromised.
From mortgage problems to junk faxes, payday loans to landlord tenant notices, Kleinman LLC is available in Nassau County, Kings County, and the greater New York area. If you are being harassed by debt buyers, Abraham Kleinman can help end these collection efforts and pursue damages if collection agencies have violated your rights.
Whether you live in Staten Island or Manhattan, call (516) 522-2621 or contact Kleinman LLC online to allow this New York area attorney evaluate whether you are entitled to damages.
