Non-investing personal finance issues including insurance, credit, real estate, taxes, employment and legal issues such as trusts and wills
A letter came in the mail from a "dial-a-lawyer" claiming that I may be eligible for compensation for Libor fixing.
(Forum rules note: the specific actionable issue is whether I lost money and entitled to compensation. Let's not discuss the aspects of the scandal that would get the thread locked.)
The letter mentioned HSBC, but my Libor-indexed ARM is with Citi.
I don't trust letters like that one, but it piqued my curiosity. Google didn't give straight answers (except that I probably benefitted, not lost, unless Libor was artificially inflated on the date of the reset).
So, wise Bogleheads, do you think there's anything actionable here?

Bizarrely there might be. Search around for lawyers who seem to have a record in this area (class action) who are putting together suits.
we are a long way from having court settlements on this, btw. Right now it's still regulators and criminal charges.
