NEW YORK, July 31, 2018 – Bragar Eagel & Squire, P.C. is investigating potential claims against American Express Company (NYSE: AXP). Our investigation concerns whether American Express and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated federal securities laws, specifically in connection with potential misconduct within its foreign-exchange international payments department.
On July 30, 2018, The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “American Express Gave Small Businesses One Rate, Then Secretly Raised It.” Citing “current and former employees and emails,” the article reported that American Express’ “foreign-exchange international payments department routinely increased conversion rates without notifying customers in a bid to boost revenue and employee commissions” and that “[t]he practice, widespread within the forex department, was occurring until early this year and dates back to at least 2004.”
