If you or someone you know made a purchase using a credit card or debit card at a FedEX Office store between April 2009 to April 2010 you might be a part of the FXO Class Action lawsuit. The proposed settlement for class members who file valid claims is a $50 FedEx Office Store Value Card. The case is entitled Razmig Tchoboian v. FedEx Office and Print Services, Inc and revolves around claims that FedEx Office stores released receipts that showed too many numbers of the customers credit or debit card which is in violation of the law under the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act. The violations were committed by self-service machines at FedEx Office store locations nationwide. The lawsuit claims that machines printed receipts that displayed the first two digits and the last four digits of customers credit/debit card numbers… this is not good. The customer could of tossed the receipt in the trash not knowing and opened themselves up to potential problems down the road. FACTA strictly prohibits companies from displaying the last 5 digits of the card number or the expiration date on any printed receipt and carries a fine of $100 to $1,000 per violation. FedEx denies are actions of wrong doing but has agreed to settlement terms.
