US District Court Settlement Administrator

I got a letter in the mail today. US District Court approved refund for overseas credit card purchases.

P.O. box 290
Philadelphia PA


It seems legit, was wondering if anyone else got one...

Yep, $25 or some lengthy process if you feel you're entitled to more.

I think I am going to make the girls at the bank search my accounts to see how much I can get back.

Can someone enlighten the rest of us on this issue? Is this in reference to a specific case, or if we spent ANY money overseas?

What about the $15k I spent on that Russian bride? Turns out she looked nothing like the photo: About 200lbs heavier and tons of hairy moles.

It relates to people who have traveled overseas and/or bought stuff from overseas, paying in non-US funds, thus getting ripped off by MasterCard and VISA on the exchange rate when converting foreign currency to US Dollars.

Interesting, I definitely fall into the general category having lived overseas for a large time during that period. But strangely, when I used my credit card, I always got a pretty advantageous "bank rate" on the transaction. Maybe only the cards issued by certain banks were affected.

Either way, before anyone orders up a mail order bride from Russia, ask me first...

I guess I might see if I can apply this to the underdrive I got from Ashcroft in England. I guess it's similar to a mail-order Russian bride - - it whines a lot, has maintenance issues, and needs to be watched.
