My wife had an AMEX card that was charged off for a pretty big balance. At the time, I DV'd about 4 different collection agencies and one day the account was completely gone from all of her CRs. The account is now 2-3 years past SOL.

 

Here is the odd part. She just received a check for $48 in the mail from AMEX for this same account. The reason stated...."This is because we did not send you a statement for your billing period ending in 05/2008. The check is for a refund of fees, transactions, and finance charges that were billed on that statement."

 

Seems bazaar to me. I have no intention of cashing this check by the way.

I would live dangerously cashing the check just assuming its one of those ridiculous settlements to avoid some potential class action and they probably aren't checking their own internal database to see whether or not everyone is in good status with the company... seems to be more and more of that nonsense these days.

 

But not every decision I make is a right one :)

My brother got $159 check from Amex yesterday because they charged him late fee. I think it was one of the lost lawsuit. He also got credit back on all his Amex accounts. I think it is pretty safe to cash the check.
