To resolve any FACTA claims that Hibbett violated the law by intentionally including more than five final digits of credit card or debit card numbers on retailer shop (POS) receipts, the corporation will pay up to $6,000,000. Each individual can claim up to $20 without proof.
Hibbett is a wholesale distributor for retail establishments across the United States. The majority of their things are common household items. Hibbett’s items are available at a variety of retailers, including Target, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Dollar General, Kmart, Sears, and Kohl’s.
The lawsuit says that Hibbett, Inc. broke the Federal Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act (FACTA) by printing more than the last five digits of its customers’ credit or debit card numbers on their receipts. Due to this, customers at the defendants’ more than 1,000 sportswear stores are more likely to have their identities stolen.
Under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), lenders must make information about mortgage products’ interest rates, fees, and other charges public. According to the FACTA Act, the expiration date or more than the last five digits of a credit card number may not be shared between businesses. Penalties for breaking this provision range from $100 to $1,000 per infraction.
Class members don’t need to show physical proof of receipt.
Any resident of the United States of America who made a purchase with a credit or debit card at a Hibbett, Sport Additions, or City Gear retail shop and received a receipt for the transaction between December 15, 2020, and February 23, 2022, is eligible for the claim.
What do we get out of the settlement?
Hibbett will pay up to $6 million to class members after paying $1.925 million in legal fees, such as attorney’s fees. To get the claimed funds, you must have a reward account. The overall amount of money is determined by the number of claims.
Each class member may claim up to $20 without presenting evidence of purchase.
