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.
