On April 16, 2013, the Court approved a distribution of checks concerning foreign transaction fee claims made in connection with the settlements in the two related matters In re Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litig.
and Ross, et al. v. American Express Co., et al.
(The initial distribution of checks in connection with the Currency Conversion Fee settlement was completed by mid-January 2012.)
The Settlement Administrator will be issuing distribution checks to Authorized Claimants during the period from approximately mid-May to mid-July 2013. (Please see the Frequently Asked Questions
for information on the distribution checks.) You should note that distribution checks will be void after 90 days from the date on the check. If you receive a settlement check, please promptly deposit it before the check’s 90-day expiration date.
Because of the large volume of checks (more than 7.4 million), the checks will be mailed over a period of approximately two months, beginning in mid-May, 2013. If you submitted a valid, timely claim and you have not received a check by the end of July 2013, please contact the Settlement Administrator or Co-Lead Class Counsel. To assist such inquiries, claimants should provide as much of the following information as possible: name, current address (and the address used when the claim was submitted, if different), current contact information (e.g., telephone or email), Claim number or Refund ID number, and the type of claim submitted.
Please continue to monitor this website for updates concerning the refund process. If you have changed your address, you should send any updated information to the Settlement Administrator.
