Three displays within three blocks: 39 degrees, 43 degrees, and 51 degrees. It's really warming up the farther South I go!

I got a letter in the mail from U.S. District Court Settlement Administrator with a PO Box address in Philadelphia. It says I'm eligible for a refund of fees from using my credit card on foreign transactions from 1996 to 2006. But with a PO Box address and a .com instead of .gov online form, I'm wondering if this is a scam or not. I've tried an online search and someone in a Google Groups posed the same question and all the answers say that it may be legit.

We all got refunds in New Zealand earlier this year. It may be being administrated differently in your country, but here we got a letter from the bank that issues our card, addressed to us personally, saying the court ordered refunds of $xx.xx would be on our next cc statement. Of course, now they're declaring the charges so they can still make exactly the same amount of money on all the current purchases! ;o)

That figures. If they can't get you one way, they'll try another. And then they wonder why we're all paranoid. ;)

They did have something on Snopes about it!
Okay, I feel like an idiot. I checked the Frauds and Scams section but didn't search the whole site. :(

But the Snopes article did say it was legitimate, right? That's encouraging at least!

Yes, they said it is true and not a scam.
Plus when I went to register it turns out that you don't have to give your credit card number but you do have to verify that they have your correct name and address.
