** UPDATE **

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has entered into a national consortium agreement in order to better and more efficiently prosecute this case together with the law firms Branch MacMaster LLP and Camp Fiorente Matthews.

For more detailed information, as well as, for further up-to-date documentation, please visit the website created exclusively for this class action at www.creditcardclassaction.com

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a national class action lawsuit against Visa and MasterCard on behalf of merchants who accept as a method of payment these companies’ credit cards and consumers who purchased a good or service one of these merchants.

The class action is based on these companies imposing significant anti-competitive restrictions on merchants from trying to encourage customers to use lower-cost methods of payment and from declining to accept certain Visa and MasterCard credit cards with high fees. Merchants then pass on some or all of the increased costs resulting from high credit card costs to their customers in the form of higher retail prices. These costs are borne by all customers, including those that use other methods of payment, such as cash, debit cards or credit cards with lower fees.
