Lowe's Faces Class Action for Credit Card Violations

- by

The Glen Carbon outlet of the home improvement giant Lowe's is facing a class action suit over allegations that it printed more than the last 5 digits of customers' credit cards numbers on receipts, thereby putting peoples' financial information at risk.

Lead plaintiff in the case, Doris J. Masters, alleges that her entire 16-digit Lowe's credit card number was printed on a receipt following a purchase on October 15, 2007. She claims the store was negligent by printing the number and is violation of the Fair and Accurate Transactions Act (FACTA).

The class action seeks statutory damages of $100 to $1,000 per violation, punitive damages, attorneys' fees, litigation expenses and costs.

was told a 100 dollar credit would be given with signing up with a credit card. Made purchase with card, for a washing machine for 600 dollars. after the credit it was 500 and change. well the washing machine was never delivered or in stk like promised. took 3 day off for the delivery which I was told was on its way. Well then Lowes livingston texas said they did not have the machine after 2 months of waiting and taking off time from work.
I went in and discussed this with Debe Norris from Lowes and she told me that I still would have a credit of 100 dollars. I bought 10 pc of 2x6 x 10' wood and 6 dollars of air filters.
I was billed the full amount. I made a payment of 103 dollars and was told that this would end the issue. Well now I have a bill of 229.00 after paying 103.00 and have called 23 times to talk to supervisor to clear up.
Now here is the real deal. while signing up for credit card I was asked to take surveys and listen to deals that I could join. I said no to all deals and still waited for approval of card.
I then had MY idenity stolen and was charged by three diffrent health programs at 39.00 a month. I had to cancel my credit card and call to get charges reversed. They only reversed one. Lowes credit card people call everyday, and keep charging me intrest for something I did not buy or agree to. HELP I have all documetation.The time I took of from work waiting for Lowes delivery.
