Prev Article 6. - CONSUMER PROTECTIONNext


50-618. Unsolicited credit cards; rights of recipient when card lost or stolen. Whenever any person, firm, partnership, association, corporation or other business organization, or any agent thereof, shall voluntarily issue or cause to be issued a financial card, as defined in K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 21-5828, and amendments thereto, where the person to whom the card is issued has not requested or solicited such issuance, and has neither signed nor used such card, the person to whom the card is issued shall not be liable for any use or misuse of such card if it shall be lost or stolen. In any action for the return of such card, or for the return of any goods, wares or merchandise acquired through use of such card subsequent to it being lost by or stolen from the recipient thereof, or for the payment of the purchase price of said goods, wares or merchandise, it shall be a complete defense by such recipient that the card was issued, sent or delivered, or caused to be issued, sent or delivered, to the recipient unsolicited or that the recipient did not actually order or request the same and that the recipient neither signed nor used such card. Where any person has requested or solicited the issuance of a financial card from any person, firm, partnership, association, corporation or other business organization, or any agent thereof or such person has signed or used such card, the reissuance or renewal of such card, regardless of any specific request or solicitation therefor by the holder of such card, shall not be deemed to be the receipt of an unsolicited financial card within the meaning of this act.
