IKEA FACTA Receipt Privacy $24.25M Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
IKEA, the popular furniture retailer, has agreed to pay $24.45 million to resolve claims related to printing receipts with excessive payment card information. The lawsuit alleges that IKEA violated the Fair and Accurate Transactions Act (FACTA) by printing more than the legally allowed information on receipts. FACTA only permits the last five digits of a card number to appear on an electronically printed receipt and prohibits the display of expiration date information. However, IKEA allegedly printed the first six and last four digits of payment card numbers on its receipts.
This settlement benefits IKEA shoppers who used a debit or credit card at any IKEA retail store between Oct. 18, 2017, and Dec. 31, 2019, and received a receipt from the transaction displaying excessive card information. The deadline to submit a claim in the settlement is May 4, 2023. Don't miss out on this opportunity to hold IKEA accountable for its alleged breach of customer privacy.
