Why We’re Here

So you have complaint against American Express. A major issue. And American Express customer service hasn’t solved your complaint.

Maybe you want compensation for overcharges, fraudulent sales tactics, collections issues, or impact to your credit. Maybe you just want American Express to admit they’re in the wrong and give you fair treatment. Either way, you’re looking to take action on your American Express complaint.

So, the question is: how can you make American Express hear your complaint? Can you sue American Express? What sort of compensation do customers get from American Express their complaints?


The first thing to know, is that your American Express contract probably limits your options for legal complaints against American Express. You generally have two options:
