wren, for the record, the lawyers' fees will not be affected whether you and others file or don't file!

Scarlett wonders:

>...and is the alternative to not participating in a class action law suit, ... allowing them to get away with illegal practices? Making even more money on us?

This one ( to my understanding) was for their conversion of foreign currency charges for 7 years! <

Actually, no one has admitted to or been shown to have engaged in illegal practices.

The suit claimed that AMEX failed to properly notify its customers that there was a 2 point conversion fee.

I recall reading the boiler plate that came with my AMEX card.

The fee was mentioned.

I should have listened to my father, who told me to go to law school.

Oh, good--we received one too and I was going to do some research into whether or not it was a scam, but it looks like ira has already done the legwork.

Thanks, ira .

FWIW, I did note that any money left in the pot after everyone gets their share will go to a charity.
