You Might Get Some Cash From A Class Action Lawsuit

Does this sound familiar: You answer a phone call from a number you don’t recognize. The automated voice on the other end of the call congratulates you on possibly winning a free vacation cruise. In reality, you probably did not win a cruise. More importantly, you did not give the marketing company permission to call you. This is where you might be able to cash in.

According to an article in Fortune Magazine:

“Resort Marketing Group, which represents cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line, settled a class action lawsuit that alleged the company violated the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) by spamming thousands of people with recorded telemarketing calls without their prior consent, according to the lawsuit. Now consumers who received these calls can get up to $300 for each one they got — with a cap at $900 per phone line.”

If you received one of these unsolicited calls ( AKA: Robo Calls) between July 23, 2009 and March 8, 2014, you are eligible. Can’t remember if you received a call in that time period? A website has been established so you can check. Follow this link:
