The case against a South Dakota-based payday lending operation that charged illegal interest on loans is wrapping up in New York state where residents can now start filing refund claims, according to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office.

More than $20 million could be distributed, depending on the number of consumers who make claims, and many borrowers will receive a refund of more than $1,000. The settlement included penalties totaling $1.5 million.
