Cash Vouchers to Customers who Believe were Scammed at Winners or HomeSense Canada

Tips & Tricks

Thanks curriecheung letting us know about this and thanks NSAngel for alerting me!

Customers who believe they were scammed after shopping at Winners and HomeSense stores in Canada are running out of time to seek compensation from the retailers’ parent company, TJX. The U.S.-based owner of the retail chains agreed to compensate customers following a 2007 lawsuit stemming from TJX’s announcement that millions of credit and debit card numbers were stolen from its computer system. Part of the settlement includes $30 and $60 vouchers for customers who had to change bank and credit card information.

Shoppers have until Oct. 13 to file a compensation form.

The courts forced the company to advertise the settlement in Canada and the United States, but Canadian lawyer Evatt Merchant says customers may not have seen the notices about the settlement.

At least 45.7 million credit and debit card numbers of TJX customers were stolen from the company’s computer system over several years.

I was one of those customers who were scammed after shopping @ Winners and HomeSense stores. Again please don’t delay to apply for compensation, you must submit ur compensation form by mail on or before October 13, 2008.

To qualify you must have made a purchase at Winners or Homesense stores between December 31, 2002 through September 2, 2003, or May 15, 2006 through December 18, 2006.

    Thank you for posting this.

    I had to change my credit card info and received no compensation for all the hassles that I went through.
    And no notice that this was being offered.

    TJ MAXX already knows which customers had to cancel their credit cards, why make it extra difficult by forcing them to file a claim form too?

    I agree wif eatereater123 ~ when they already knows which customers are the victims, why can’t they juz mail the compensation to them but make them go thru the headache once again!!!!
    Well, but guess we have no choice if we wanna claim the $$$!!!

  4. Sally says:
