Credit Card Information

Pittsburgh, PA: (Jan-28-08) A class action lawsuit was brought against big Burrito Group, a local hospitality company, alleging that the company violated a federal law designed to protect consumers' credit card information. The suit, brought by Thomas Reed, a Lawrence County resident, stated that big Burrito jeopardized his credit card information by printing both the last five numbers of his credit card and its expiration date on his receipt.

The March 2007 suit reached a settlement in which the company agreed to reimburse customers who used a credit or debit card at various times at various big Burrito Group eateries in 2007. The class members will be entitled to a $7 settlement relief card, which can be used only at the company's Mad Mex restaurants under various restrictions. The settlement also calls for the company to pay for $105,000 in legal fees. In agreeing to settle, the company admitted to no wrongdoing over its compliance with the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act of 2003. [PITTSBURGH BUSINESS TIMES: CUSTOMER DATA]
