Are They Using Your Driver’s License…To Steal?

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — More and more retailers are asking for, and swiping, your driver’s license.

But as Sandra Mitchell reported on the CBS 2 News at 11 p.m. Thursday, some of those retailers are using your license for the wrong reasons. And, its not illegal!

Many stores use a Southland company to track returns. You can request a return activity report from the company as well.

If so, and you would like a copy of your return activity report from The Retail Equation, please send an email to:

In order to ensure your privacy, please include in your message to The Retail Equation your name and a phone number where The Retail Equation can reach you.

When a representative from The Retail Equation calls they will ask for your return transaction ID number and the last four digits of your ID number. The Retail Equation prefers to call you so that you can avoid sending this private  information via email.
