- Shoppers at Zara USA from December of 2014 to April of 2015 could have a free check coming because of a class action lawsuit
- The last day to submit a valid claim in the Settlement Zara class action lawsuit is January 22 of 2016
- The estimated settlement amount for each customer is between $100 and $1000 per violation
Shoppers who visited a Zara USA store from December 17, 2014 to April 27, 2015, and chose to have an e-receipt printed could be in line for a free payday thanks to a class action lawsuit. The class action lawsuit against Zara alleges that e-receipts from the time period listed actually printed the first six digits of customers’ credit and debit card information instead of obscuring it. This violates the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act, and each customer could be compensated from $100 to $1000 for each violation!
The deadline to submit a claim in the suit against Zara is January 22, 2016. The final approval hearing will be held March 8, 2016. If approved, settlement funds will be distributed around 21 days after the final hearing. The total settlement fund in the Zara class action suit is around $1.6 million dollars. $400,000 of that money will go to the attorneys in the case, and the rest will be distributed among eligible claims. The settlement checks from Zara will be distributed through the mail, and sent to the address that is listed on the claim form. These checks will be valid for 45 days. Any uncashed checks will be void, and the funds donated to Dress for Success.
Zara has 2,000 locations across the world, with shops in 88 countries. Zara’s products have come under fire a few times, notably when a handbag that was for sale included a swastika, and when a toddler t-shirt closely resembled the clothes worn by Jewish concentration camp prisoners.
