MasterCard is now facing a class action lawsuit by more than 1,000 customers who say they have been charged twice for purchases that were made on the same card.
MasterCard says it has stopped issuing MasterCard debit cards, and is working with federal regulators to address the issue.
In a statement to Reuters on Wednesday, the company said it has taken steps to reduce the number of MasterCard transactions, including using third-party payment processors such as PayPal, which have made it easier to process transactions using the new card.
“We have recently increased our safeguards to ensure our customers receive the correct cards, while we continue to develop and improve our customer experience,” the company’s statement said.
“MasterCard continues to believe that the changes it has implemented will protect its customers and reduce fraud and abuse.”
The lawsuit was filed by the National Consumer Law Center, which is representing more than 100 MasterCard customers.
It accuses MasterCard of misleading consumers about the cost of the cards and charging them multiple times for purchases they made on different MasterCard cards.
The suit seeks to have the MasterCard MasterCard prepaid cards canceled.
According to the suit, the cards are issued in exchange for a $20 annual fee.
When consumers pay the annual fee, they receive a debit card, which allows them to make payments to merchants at their leisure.
The lawsuit does not say how many transactions were made by the consumer on the new cards.
It’s unclear how many customers have been affected by the suit.
According a MasterCard spokesman, the number has not changed since January.
