Earlier this month the D.C. Circuit Court ruled that a concessionaire who issued a receipt containing all sixteen numbers of a customer’s credit card had violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA). FACTA was put in place in 2003 in order to prevent identity theft and strictly prohibits vendors from printing more than the last five digits of a customer’s credit card, as printing a full card number can lead to a serious breach in a customer’s personal security. The recent ruling in the D.C. Circuit made it clear that vendors who breach FACTA can be held liable for increasing the possibility of identity theft and the risk of severe personal injury for their customers.
