The Better Business Bureau has determined that checks for $18 sent by the Foreign Currency Fee Litigation Settlement Fund are legitimate and can be cashed or deposited.
According to national BBB sources, the checks are the result of a 2009 settlement over the fees credit card companies charged people when using their card abroad. Those who traveled outside the United States between February 1996 and November 2006 may receive this check.
In many cases, customers did not opt into the settlement themselves, but were opted in by their banks. For more information, visit ccfsettlement.com/home/
