    Credit card refund fee forms in the mail - legit?

    I got a thing in the mail today from the US District Court Settlement Admin. in Philly. It says I am eligible to receive a court approved refund of fees from my credit card based on foreign transactions made on overseas trips between 1996 and 2006.

    There are 3 refund options. One is a straight $25 if you travelled overseas for less than a week. Option 2 is for those who travelled more than a week. Option 3 is mostly for extensive overseas travel, like for long business trips and such.

    Has anyone else gotten this thing? If so, what do you think? It really looks legit. There's even a website:

    Yes it's legit. I got one as well. Unfortunately I used it most in the States and not enough outside the country to qualify for anything other than option 1...

    Re: Credit card refund fee forms in the mail - legit?

    It looks very similar to the Microsoft and Verizon class action settlements I received in the past. Looks legit to me, especially since there are no fees involved.

    Have you been outside the US and used a credit card or ATM in the last 10 years? Had an international credit transaction with your credit card? I know I did.

    Did a little searching. Found this link not related to the class action site itself.

    USA Today confirms it.

    Apparently it is legit. However, I'm extremely paranoid and precaucious over such things. Before disclosing your credit account numbers, I'd contact the US District Court Settlement Admin. in Philly and double check.

    WOW!!! Their own website! It MUST be legit...



    A little more due diligence just might be required before I would give them my personal info.


    But then again, I'm still waiting for the estate of my long-lost uncle (that I never knew I had) from nigeria to send me the balance of the three million dollar account that he had before he died.

    I only had to send them five grand to show that I was an honest person, and worthy of the inherited millions.

    How much longer should I wait before I start to question the validity of that nigerian attorney??? It's only been about two years now...

    I'm sure he'll be calling me any day now. I can just feel it!

    Re: Credit card refund fee forms in the mail - legit?

    Hmmm.... So, I've spent about five months (cumulatively) out of the country between 1996 and 2006, but I don't have receipts or anything for most of those trips anymore. I wonder if I should just take the $25.

    They do not ask for any information they don't already have. Just enter the ID code from the letter and then check the amount you are requesting. No account numbers or any other personal information is requested.

    I got mine today and it seems fine. As others have said they don't ask for any info they don't already have (IE name and address)

    If this is the case, it sounds safe.

    Re: Credit card refund fee forms in the mail - legit?

    My 18 year old son got one yesterday and it did ask for account numbers on his. I tore it up. He has never travelled out of the country and so it really should not apply to him anyway but we are not willing to risk giving out account numbers to find out. Funny though he got one but hubby and I did not and we have been out of the country.

    Re: Credit card refund fee forms in the mail - legit?

    ^^^^^^^

    Could be a clone con.

    The scammers will sometimes "piggy back" on a legit situation with a similar version of their own. Folks hear about the legit one on the news, and will fall for the phoney one much easier, since their "guards" have already been lowered.

    I haven't sold anything on eBay in about six months, but I continue to get the eBay spoof emails. I know they're spoofs because they are emails that are supposedly asking questions about my listings or telling me to click on a link to collect my payment for an item that I sold, etc...

    The worst one was one asking me for my account number so they could process a payment to me.

    Yeah, like I'm gonna fall for that...
