Stores May Violate Your Privacy By Asking For Your ZIP Code

In today’s world, our privacy continues to shrink.  In response, savvy consumers do their best to guard their privacy by avoiding sharing their personal information with retailers.  Unfortunately, many retailers trick consumers into revealing their personal information by unlawfully requiring consumers to give out their ZIP code when making purchasers.  Retailers then use the ZIP code to access even more personal information. 

This behavior is unlawful, and Meiselman, Packman, Nealon, Scialabba & Baker P.C. is proud to bring class actions against retailers who ask consumers using credit cards for their ZIP codes.  If a retailer asked you for your ZIP code, please contact us to discuss your legal options.
