Allegations that a company failed to get rid of the credit card numbers shown on the receipts it was printing off to its customers sometimes become the first step on the long and windy road often associated with the class action litigation process. An example of such allegations can be found in the recently settled case titled Frank Cowen et al., individually and on behalf of all similarly situated individuals v. Evergreen Alliance Golf Limited, L.P. (phew that was a mouthful!). The case was filed over claims that the Defendant violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act by failing to properly redact credit card or debit card numbers on its receipts. However, it is important to point out that the Defendant not only denies liability and all claims brought forth in the suit, but also denies the case should be treated as a class action. At any rate, the case now appears to be settled as both parties have agreed to bring it to a close in order to avoid the costs and risks associated with going deeper into litigation. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation can get started by visiting the Golf Course FACTA Settlement page.
