What's The IKEA Class Action Settlement About?
A $24,250,000 Class Action Settelment has been agreed to with IKEA. The IKEA class action lawsuit that was brought to courts alleged that IKEA Stores violated FACTA (The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) by printing point-of-sale receipts for credit card and debit card transactions that included more than 5 digits of the customer's card number. In the case of the IKEA settlement, receipts had printed the first 6 and the last 4 digits of consumer credit or debit cards as the result of transactions made at stores.FACTA is the speicifc consumer law designed to protect consumers in three broad ways:
• Consumer Protection
• Security and Privacy
• Credit Reporting
According to the IKEA Court case documents, IKEA allegedly displayed more than the last five digits of the card number, which would be in violation of FACTA. FACTA, or the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act is an act passed by the US congress in 2003 that aims to improve consumer credit-related activities and protect consumer personally identifiable information.
