NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Tens of thousands of people in Louisiana who bought computers, game consoles, printers, DVD players and other electronics that use DRAM can expect a check in the mail.

Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Aug. 1 checks are going to people who were overcharged for DRAM memory. The checks are part of a class action lawsuit settlement against memory manufactures accused of price fixing.

"I am excited this settlement will return money to the pockets of those who were exploited," said General Landry. "And as Louisiana's Chief Legal Officer – I will continue fighting to protect our State's consumers, elderly, and most vulnerable."

The average refund is $56.
