If You Were Asked To Provide Your Zip Code, Telephone Number, Address or Other Personal Identification Information When Making A Credit Card Purchase, Contact A Class Action Attorney.
A team of class action lawyers and attorneys has launched an investigation into certain stores' and retailers' practice of asking customers who use credit cards to provide "personal identification information" including the credit card holder's zip code or postal code, phone number and/or address when processing a credit card transaction and recording the credit card holder's zip code, telephone number or address, when that information is not required for a special purpose incidental but related to the credit card transaction (such as shipping, delivery, servicing, or installation of the purchased merchandise, or for special orders).
The California Supreme Court has ruled that the collection and recording of a zip code, telephone number or address from a customer making a credit card purchase can violate California Civil Code Section 1747.08, the Song-Beverly Credit Card Act of 1971 (Credit Card Act), which provides for penalties up to $250 for the first violation and up to $1,000 for each subsequent violation.
If you made a purchase in California using a credit card and were asked to provide your zip code, telephone number, address or other personal identification information, you may be entitled to recover money.
