Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litigation

M 21-95, MDL NO. 1409
In the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York
Honorable Judge William H. Pauley III

Heffler Claims Group was engaged as Claims and Tax Administrator of the Currency Conversion Fee Antitrust Litigation. We established a settlement escrow fund at the direction of class counsel for the $336 million paid by the defendants. We also assisted Class Counsel in developing a Notice and Proof of Claim form in two languages, which was mailed to over 38 million potential class members. We developed a custom website in two languages to explain the litigation, to answer questions, to provide copies of various documents and to allow claimants to file their claims electronically online. In addition, Heffler maintained a toll-free number that provided answers to Frequently Asked Questions and provided access to live, multilingual operators to assist with any questions or to log a request for document copies during the filing period. We also worked with a media company to release the summary notice in various print and electronic media with daily circulations of over 7.5 million. A total in excess of 10.2 million claims were filed in this matter. Heffler also undertook an extensive audit program to test the validity of various claims.
