Credit Card Privacy Litigation

Credit Card Privacy Litigation in San Francisco Superior Court has been filed for all holders of credit cards serviced by Household Credit Services and has a California address. From the privacy lawsuit web site linked above:

Any person or entity who, between September 9, 1995 and August 31, 2001: (1) had a credit card serviced by Household Credit Services, Inc. ("Household"); (2) had a California mailing address for purposes of communicating with Household; and (3) at the time that they had that California mailing address, had certain information (name, address, telephone number and scrambled or unscrambled credit card number ) disclosed by Household to any third-party vendor with whom Household has or had a contract, agreement or understanding to disclose certain information and pursuant to which Household was entitled to receive money, directly or indirectly, as a result of any sales of goods, programs, or services by the third-party vendor to Household credit card holders or through an administrative, service or transaction fee (the "Household Class"). Excluded from the Household Class is Household, any parent, subsidiary or affiliate of Household, and all officers and directors who are, or who have been, employed by Household from September 9, 1995 to August 31, 2001.

This is no doubt only one of hundreds of this type of suit to be filed for privacy violations of financial information disclosures in the near future. The class action front for privacy violations and identity theft is just opening.
