Something in the mailbox at home yesterday other than ANOTHER Neiman Marcus Christmas catalogue or bills...A letter regarding a Class action lawsuit in California. Apparently there is an issue regarding the collection of (your) personal information at the time of purchase with a credit card by Hermes SA during a specific time period. Don't have the letter in front of me right now, but it was roughly between May 2004 and May 2005. It had to be a credit card purchase at a California boutique. They asked for phone numbers and email address according to the suit. The bottom line is that if you want to be part of it and fill out the paperwork, you will receive an instore (only) gift certificate for $40. They obviously were given the names of anyone who made a purchase during that time frame and they were sent the letter. Surely, I am not the only one who purchased during that time. Anybody else receive the letter?
