One of the law’s provisions was that people who accepted credit or debit cards for business transactions were not permitted to print more than the last five digits of the card number on receipts provided at the point of sale. But according to the complaint, in 2017, when the plaintiffs in this class paid for their stays at the Four Seasons Westlake Village, their receipts showed more than the last five digits of his credit card along with the expiration date.
