Sears accused of violating consumer fraud law

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 4:01 am

Retailer Sears, Roebuck & Co has been hit with a lawsuit seeking class-action status that alleges a company Web site compromises customers’ private information.

The suit, filed last Friday in Circuit Court in Cook County, Illinois, states that the retailer’s managemyhome.com site allows users to view purchase histories of Sears customers by entering public information such as a name or street address, in violation of a state Consumer Fraud Act that forbids “unfair or deceptive” practices.
