This article suggests possibilities that are so ridiculous I'm amazed they are even considering them. I know there is a PPA action thread but I think this deserves its own thread and immediate attention.
I believe they will do the right thing in the end, but just to make sure, everyone should contact the DOJ and politely raise any of these points:
1) It would be fundamentally unfair for the DOJ to facilitate non-Americans retrieving their whole balance while leaving Americans with any less
. The DOJ exists to protect Americans. We pay taxes so that they protect us and bring justice to those who defraud us. To only give us deposits back would make them no better than the people who defrauded us.
2) Paying out deposits only would be fundamentally unfair, the fraud we were victims of deprived us of our full account balances, not just our deposits. But for the fraud, we would have our full account balances. If they want to live up to their name, the Department of Justice, they must make us whole.
3) You have more than enough money from this settlement to pay us off. No explanation will suffice for not making us whole.
4) Anything else you can think of.
Contact them through any or all of these options:
