The case against top retailer for toys and kids products for over 60 years – Toys ‘R’ Us has reached a settlement. The allegation in this case is that the company violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Card Transaction Act (FACTA) by printing last 5 digits of the credit card that you used in order to purchase products at the store. If you used a debit card, then also you can take part. Class members include all persons who used a credit card or debit card at Toys R Us outlet between December 4, 2006 and January 5, 2007. Class members, who file a valid claim by January 16, 2014, may be rewarded with a voucher up to $30. How many vouchers you receive and how much each voucher will be valid for, all these are based on what you purchased and how much you purchased at the store.
Toys ‘R’ Us denies that it did anything wrong, however agreed to reimburse Class Members through a class action lawsuit settlement to resolve the lawsuit. For this case, a fairness hearing is scheduled to be held on November 4, 2013, at 10:00 a.m.
There are 3 tiers to the vouchers that you will receive. In Tier A, you will receive 2 vouchers for $15 each. For this purpose, you must have proof or copies of the receipts; and you must have bought 3 or more items in order to be eligible. In Tier B, you will receive 1 voucher for $15. You will again need to show some type of documentation as a proof that you bought the products; also you must have bought 1 or 2 items at the store. Lastly, if you fall into Tier C, then you will receive a voucher for $5. Here, you don’t require any documentation, but you must attest that you have bought at least 1 or 2 items at the store during a given time period.
