    A class action has been filed against Citibank (South Dakota) claiming that
    the company unlawfully disclosed to telemarketers and vendors private
    financial information about customer accounts. The suit also alleges that
    because of the information leak, telemarketers had access to private
    account information that would allow them to charge credit card accounts
    without authorization.

    The action charges Citibank with breach of contract, violations of South Dakota's Deceptive Trade
    Practices Act, and violations of the common-law duty of banking confidentiality. The action seeks an
    order enjoining Citibank from disclosing cardholders' account information and awarding compensatory
    damages to class members.
