BATAVIA, IL - The owners of a Batavia restaurant on Friday filed what they hope will become a class action lawsuit against Target, claiming the retail giant’s recently revealed data breach led to the eatery’s credit card being fraudulently used, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Due Fratelli Inc., the owners of Aliano’s Ristorante, say a corporate credit card was used at a Target in Lombard in early December, said Tom Zimmerman Jr., the company’s attorney. The owners noticed on Dec. 10 that about $1,300 in “suspicious charges” were made on the same card through Amazon.com that the owner didn’t make, Zimmerman said.
“Everybody else who shopped at Target and had their private information stolen would automatically be included,” Zimmerman said. “Due Fratelli is essentially representing all their interests as a class representative.”
