[MadridMan: I am temporarely placing this credit card info here as hotels charges are generally the largest expenditure on a vacation]
I have just received a notice from one of my credit card companies that a settlement is about to take place relating to the extra 3% that companies charge c/c holders for charges overseas. It affects Visa, MC, and DC.
You have to ask for a refund.
Instead of attempting to explain the settlement here, I suggest that you go to [www.ccfsettlement.com] to read about the whole thing and how it works.
The notification points out that the attorneys in the case will request "25.7% of the U$$318,000,00 expected to be left in the settlement fund..."
That is about 90 million.... Imagine how much the C/C's made out of that 3% charge.
PS.-Who says that it does not pay to go to law school?
