PCUA vice president interviewed for card refund story
HARRISBURG, Pa. (12/10/07)--Corinne Sherman, Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) vice president, was interviewed Thursday by a local television consumer news reporter, regarding a recent class action lawsuit settlement involving Diner’s Club, Visa and MasterCard. The lawsuit was filed to try and recover a non-disclosed 3% currency conversion fee charged to cardholders who purchased items outside of the U.S. between 1996 and 2006. The court ruled in favor of the cardholders. The U.S. District Court of Philadelphia recently sent letters to cardholders eligible for at least $25 in refunds (Life is a Highway Dec. 7) The card companies “add a fee automatically for the currency conversion. What happened was they had this fee in place and it wasn’t disclosed anywhere…they have to reimburse everybody who had an international transaction through a ten-year period,” Sherman told WHTM (Dec. 6). Cardholders can request refunds by providing proof of purchases and their credit card account numbers to the companies.
