A putative class-action suit was filed against Ace Parking Management on December 1 in federal court. Joseph Samo, and potentially others, get Ace credit and debit card receipts that give too much information, "subjecting them to a substantially higher risk of an identity theft or fraud," according to the suit.
On November 8 of this year, Samo parked his vehicle in one of Ace's La Jolla lots. He paid with a Visa debit card "that illegally displayed the last four digits of his debit card, along with the debit card's full expiration date," according to the suit. This violates the Fair and Accurate Reporting Act, claims the suit.
The suit focuses more on the printing of the full expiration date of credit card holders. In 2003, Visa's chief executive, at a press conference on Capitol Hill, said, "the card's expiration date will be eliminated from receipts altogether."
Ace manages 450 lots across the U.S., grossing $440 million annually, according to the suit. After being given three days, Ace did not give a response to the suit.
