Barnes & Noble Credit Card Fraud Class Action Filed

- by

Chicago, IL: A federal consumer fraud class action lawsuit has been filed against booksellers Barnes and Noble by Susan Winstead of Deerfield, who alleges she had her credit card information stolen from an in-store PIN pad that had been compromised.

In a statement in late October, Barnes and Noble revealed that PIN pads in 63 of its stores had been compromised, including seven stores in Illinois where Winstead lives.

In the lawsuit, Winstead alleges she made frequent purchases at a Barnes and Noble in the 700 block of North Waukegan Road in Deerfield, including two purchases in August and one in the first week of September. In late September she claims to have received a phone call from her credit card company alerting her of a fraudulent purchase on her card. The credit card company consequently cancelled her card, the lawsuit contends.

The four-count proposed class action lawsuit claims willful violation of the fair credit reporting act, negligent violation of the fair credit reporting act, negligence and invasion of privacy by public disclosure of private facts.
