The Body Shop FACTA Settlement
- Claim can be filed online or by mail

When a company has allegedly violated the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act all roads usually lead to a class action lawsuit. From that point the often twisty and turning road can either lead to a settlement or a trial. In the case of the class action lawsuit titled Henry Lee v. Buth-Na-Bodhaige, Inc., d/b/a The Body Shop, S.D.N.Y the road has led to a preliminary settlement that will provide eligible Class Members with compensation in the form of a $12 Body Shop gift card. Those who believe they are eligible for compensation from the Body Shop FACTA Settlement can file a claim by going to the settlement’s designated webpage and clicking the File a Claim link. Class Members who would rather file by mail can print off and send the Claim Form directly to the Settlement Administrator. It is important to note that claims must be filed by the June 12th, 2017 deadline (post-marked by deadline for mailed Claim Forms).
