What is a class action lawsuit?

A class action is a type of lawsuit that lets groups of people act collectively. A lead plaintiff sues on behalf of everyone affected, and if they win, everyone in the affected class shares in the damages award.

The idea is to let consumers band together and bring lawsuits that they could not economically bring individually. For example, imagine if a company was making a pen that because of a faulty designed leaked ink. If you bought one of the defective pens and ended up with ink all over your clothes, you might feel ripped off but suing the company would be impractical. A lawsuit would be expensive and time consuming, and even when you won you wouldn’t get enough to make it worth your time. So the company could go on making these defective pens.

A class action lawsuit lets everyone who bought one of these pens sue together. With thousands of affected consumers acting collectively, the lawsuit is economical for both parties than thousands of small lawsuits. One of the affected people would play the role of the lead plaintiff, and sue the pen manufacturer. And when they win or settle the case, the court orders a fund be set up to pay compensation to anyone who bought these pens.

The lawyers are paid out of the compensation fund. And the lead plaintiff is usually given an extra payment to compensate them for their time.


Do I need to prove I purchased these products?

Many settlements require no proof or purchase whatsoever. In some cases, a proof of purchase is required if a consumer is claiming to have purchased more than a certain number of a particular item. Other times, a high priced product may require some proof of purchase, but that could be a credit card statement or something similar, rather than an original receipt, so this should never deter you from claiming your just reward.

Of course, you should only file for settlement for products that you actually purchased. Lying about purchasing something is not cool.


Will I be contacted to testify in court?

No.


How much will I receive?

The amount varies, however, there are many instances where a $100 or more can be received in a single claim, by checking back frequently, you can continue to receive settlement awards.


Is there a limit to the number of claims I can make?

You can apply for as many settlement awards as you’d like, there is no limit on the number of different settlements that you can apply for. They are all typically different companies with very different products, settlement amounts etc.

Each settlement has specific rules regarding the limits on a specific item, often requiring a receipt of a claim for more than a few items is made. For example, if you bought up to 6 bottles of skin lotion you might not need a receipt, but claims for more than 6 bottles might require a receipt. However, if it is a big ticket item, you may require a receipt or other proof of purchase in order to make your claim.


What happens to the settlement money if it is not claimed?

What happens to the remaining settlement money if it is not all claimed by class members depends on the terms of the settlement. But, the most common three situations are:

  • Company Keeps the Money – in some settlements, the defendant company keeps the money. (We are not a fan of this arrangement, because it creates a direct incentive for the company to avoid publicizing and paying out claims.)
  • Distributed to Claimant Members – in some settlements, the extra money is divided among those that made claims. There have been situations with unsubscribed settlement pools where the claimants received settlements far in excess of their purchase price because of this method.
  • Distributed to Charity – in some some settlements the remaining funds are given to a charity. (latin term) In principle it is meant to be a cause that benefits the class. In practice you often see funds given to causes that seem more aligned with the attorney’s personal interests that those of the class.

Why don’t you need a receipt? Couldn’t anyone file a claim?

Most of these cases involve products bought many years ago, and it is unlikely any consumer would keep a receipt or other proof of purchase. Do you keep the receipts for a pair of shoes, or Nutella spread they bought five years ago? If a receipt was required, none of the affected consumers would be able to claim their settlement money. So instead most mass consumer product settlements use an honor system for filing claims.

This trust based system does open them up to abuse, by people filing fraudulent claims. The legal philosophy that underpins the system is that as the party that wronged consumers, it is better the company bear the cost of these fraudulent claims than to deny the victims their just compensation.

Of course this does not mean you should file a fraudulent claim. Lying is not cool.


I don’t see XXX case here.

If you know about a case that we are missing, email us the details at info@classactionrebates.com and we will add it to the list.


I do not live in the United States, can I file?

These settlements are for consumers in the United States. The vast majority only provide for settlements for American consumers. In some cases, the American settlement is part of a larger global settlement and there may be a settlement fund administered in your local country, but we regret we do not have the resources (or skills) to locate, investigate, and list all these global settlements.


What are all these cases about? Why do these companies owe me money?

Most of these cases are to do with a company selling an unsafe or defective product, or advertising the product in a way that was false or misleading. Other common reasons for a class action lawsuit are companies colluding, or otherwise violating anti-trust laws. Companies producing unlawful environmental damage. Billing errors, where consumers were overcharged for a good or service. Contractual violations, where a company was not living up to the terms of their contract with their customers.



What happens if I don’t file a claim?

If you do not file a settlement claim (or opt out of the settlement>, then you will not receive a settlement payment. In most cases, your rights to receiving any settlement in the future will be severely limited. For all practical purposes, if you don’t fill in the settlement form then you won’t get anything.


Do I need a lawyer?

You do not need a lawyer to file your claim and get your settlement.

If you want to do something more complicated, like object to the settlement, then a lawyer would be advisable. But, this too does not require a lawyer.

You can of course hire a lawyer to represent you if you choose.


Is there a list of expired settlements?

We do have a list of expired settlements.

    please take the New Balance, Car Fax, Walgreens Wal-Born @ Bayer Aspirin OFF the listing page of Open Settlements. You can NO LONGER FILE A CLAIM on these.

    Also why don’t you have the AOL or Southwest Claims listed? Thanks! GREAT SITE – Please find more Open Cases.

    ADMIN – Hi Keith,

    I plan on updating about once a month at which time I will email the update to anyone who subscribes. (I figure there is no great benefit to more regular updates)

    I included the AOL Search Data settlement. I did not include Southwest drink voucher settlement, because I thought it was a pretty pitiful settlement, and not worth many people’s time. I think there is value in our curating settlements so only things that are widely available and where the settlement is worth the time of filling out the form

      the only way you would get more in a class action lawsuit is to be the lead plantiff in the suit otherwise you get whatever the class gets.

  5. Sheryl A. Bors says:

    Do I just check back on this site on June 10 /11.2013 to find out how much we get? Or how do Ifind out and how long does it take after thatdate? Thank you? Sheryl A. BORS

    ADMIN – Hi Sheryl,

    The amount of time that it takes to get your rebate varies a lot. Sometimes it is as soon as 2 months after the settlement closing date. Sometimes it takes much longer.

  6. Lisa Galindo says:

    I lost my claim form. Can I get another copy?

    ADMIN – Hi Lisa,

    Yes, you can get another claim form to replace a lost form. Simply contact the claims administrator associated with the case.

  7. Debbie Nesler says:

    Do we have to pay taxes on any settlement checks we receive?

    ADMIN – Hi Debbie,

    My understanding is that the settlements aren’t taxable, because you aren’t gaining anything (just getting a partial refund to compensate you for a loss you suffered).

  8. Michelle Fulmer says:

    When are the checks being mailed out to people who filed? Just wondering when to expect it.

    ADMIN – Hi Michelle,

    The date the checks are mailed varies a lot settlement-by-settlement. The typical rebate check is mailed 2-3 months after the settlement fund stops accepting applications. But, this is not true of all settlements. If you need specific information about a settlement, then the best source of information is the class action administrator for that particular fund.

    Has there been a date certain set that checks will be mailed out for people in the DRAM settlement?
    Also, I am unsure of exactly what items are allowed as part of the settlements. I sent in a form for the DRAM case but, I see where people are asking about anything from shoes, food, video games, cars, to ab rollers, am I missing something should I be claiming more than computer memory?
    ADMIN
    Hi Gary,
    For the DRAM you were able to claim more than one memory. Unfortunately the date for claiming has passed as for the comments you see on this page it relates to other class actions you can visit our homepage at http://www.classactionrebates.com to see if you qualify for other rebates and settlements.

    • Kathy says:

      Why wasn’t I contacted about this lawsuit, I would have filed a claim. now you say I can’t that is so unfair, Is there anyone I can call to talk to about this can I get a phone number?

      ADMIN – Hi Kathy,

      We are not the class action admins for the majority of the lawsuits we feature. A class action administrator usually sends notices and posts information in newspapers. magazines and other publications. I don’t think there is anybody you can talk about this unless you are ready to find ways to change the laws that regulate class action notifications.

    Thanks

  36. K Adams says:

    I was apart of a class action lawsuit involving bank of America in 2011. At that time I received notification that if I wanted to remain in the lawsuit, that I didn’t have to do anything. I know these lawsuits can take a long time so I waited (obviously too long). Out of curiosity I decided to see what was going on. Apparently the case settled back in 2012. I received no notification and no payments. I’m told there’s nothing I can do as I did not cash the first of 3 checks distributed (never received). Is there nothing I can do? Will this go to the state controllers office, or has the bank gotten back the money they took from me in the first place?

    ADMIN – Hi K,

    If the class action settlement did not include a clause indicating where the leftover funds would most likely be forwarded to the controller. On the other hand if the leftover money was set to be given to charity you are out of luck.

  37. Diane Gormsen says:

    I received a check from Skechers Settlement dated 12 July 2013 that I never cashed. It says check was good for 90 days. How can I get a replacement for this uncashed check? Amout of check = $68.86

    ADMIN – Hi Diane,

    Generally speaking you can’t get a replacement after so much time has passed by. Check with your state controller to see if the funds were allocated under your name.

    I have been contacted by phone and email by people claiming to be with FinCen and that they are responsible for sending out funds from a lawsuit against Westgate Lakes Resort. We are owners of a timeshare with them. We never received anything by mail from FinCen but our address had changed slightly over the years. Now they want me to fill out a form 105 that is for declaring funds going in or out of the US since the settlement amount due us is over $10,000. Everything I search to confirm or debunk this stops just short of doing either. They say the firm is for reporting to the IRS. Does this sound like proper
    form and/or procedure?

    ADMIN – Hi Christine,

    If the website is down then the settlement has been closed for a while and the funds remaining from members that failed to cash their checks have gone to charity or to the treasurer that handles unclaimed monies for your state.

    So my wife and stepson work for CVS. They both got some kind of notice regarding a class action suit. Neither did anything. The kid who worked there part-time, and for only a couple years got a check out of the blue for almost 700 dollars. My wife who has worked there for close to 9 years, full-time gets a check for 24 dollars! How the hell does that work? The kid hardly worked!

    ADMIN – Hi Frank,

    I am unfamiliar with the way the CVS settlement was distributed. Your best bet is to contact the class action administrator so you can give you some idea as to the rules of distribution.

  68. Ellen says:

    I have a question. What do you do if you accidentally submit a claim form/receive a claim number twice? Is there a way to cancel one of the claims, and leave the other one valid?
    There is a phone number, but no options for this or to speak to a person.

    ADMIN – Hi Ellen,

    Depends which case you are talking about.

  69. chris says:

    i don’t know where to start,not sure if it is too late to even try.i have several bad investment and class action settlement came into play.i have submitted all required information to the settlement but till this day i have received $0 dollars,it probably been at least 5 years.Anything i can do from here on out?

    ADMIN – Hi Chris,

    Question is to vague so I cannot assist you.

    • alma says:

      You have to make sure everything is filled out correctly, I have received every claim that I submitted, I have received thousands of dollars over the last couple years.

      ADMIN – Hi Alma,

      Exactly what Alma is telling you. If you don’t fill out your forms accurately you will most likely be rejected.

  70. veronica walton says:

    what happens if the address provided in the claim we have moved from before checks are mailed?

    ADMIN – Hi Veronica,

    You need to send the admin a change of address via snail mail.

  71. William Cameron says:

    We live in Alaska but purchased a Volkswagen Golf in WA. I put AK as our State of Residence, should I have put WA?

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    Since you are asking this question under the about us tab I have no idea which settlement you are filing. If you ask your question under the right settlement I am happy to go read the eligibility requirements and provide you with clarity.

  72. Leah Suggs says:

    If there is a claim that I am entitled to but it was passed the date that the paperwork was due by can I still file it even though it is late?

    ADMIN – Hi Leah,

    Once the deadline has passed you no longer have legal recourse. You cannot file.

  73. Leah Suggs says:

    I claimed a form and then found out my husband had sent in a claim. The paperwork does say only one claim per household. Do they check that very carefully? What should I do about that?

    ADMIN – Hi Leah,

    They do and they will cancel both claims unless you contact them.

  74. Scott Smith says:

    I sent in my form online several months ago and have received nothing as of this time. When should I receive my settlement from Harbor Freight?

    ADMIN – Hi Scott,

    You should reach out to the class action administrator.

  75. Bill Smith says:

    I sent in my form online several months ago and have received nothing as of this time. When should I receive my settlement from Harbor Freight? Also my email address has changed since time of sending in so please take notice below.

    ADMIN – Hi Bill,

    We cannot answer questions on specific claims. You must contact the class action administration directly.

  76. Martin Kladko says:

    Please change my email address.

    ADMIN – Hi Martin,

    You mean in the newsletter?

  77. Robert Markunas says:

    Hello

    I deposited the check in my bank and it bounced. My bank, Chase, charged me $12.00.

    What now ?

    ADMIN – Hi Robert,

    Reach out to the class action admin. Their info is posted on the page for the settlement.

  78. Linda Brumm says:

    I tried to correct the date and it went to another screen before I finished. I must have hit a wrong key. I need to get back in to make the correction. How can I make a change? Can you reset/remove my information so that I can get back to the site (DataBreach-Settlement.com) and correct the error?

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

    You need to contact the class action administrator directly. We are not able to make corrections to claim forms.

    • Linda Brumm says:

      The only number I have is a recording. Do you have contact information?

      ADMIN – Hi Linda,

      Contact for whom? You are asking your question in our FAQ page so I have no idea which case you are talking about.

  79. Gayle says:

    I want to know if I file a claim online and its won do I just get a check in mail once case is done. and its settled or do I have to use claim number and make contact. With the court

    ADMIN – Hi Gayle,

    Generally you just get a check in the mail.

  80. Andie says:

    When filling out a class action is it only one per mailing address? We have 2 houses on our property and both my husband and the other husband purchased the same thing and both filled out the class action form, same mailing address, different names. How does this effect the claims? Are they null and void because the show the same mailing address?

    ADMIN – Hi Andie,

    You have to read the terms of the settlement. Some are per person and some are per household.

  81. Ollie Smith says:

    I really don’t understand about the sensors. Do they pose to be a danger. Should I contact ADT about this?

    ADMIN – Hi Ollie,

    The sensors were at risk of being hacked. I believe the company has fixed the issue.

  82. Gil A. Sanchez says:

    Aloha,
    How do I start a Class Action Law Suit? I have Two I would like to do. The first: Atrium Medical’s Pro Loop Hernia Mesh and Plug. The Second: Kenmore/Sears Refrigerator Model: 25360412411.
    Thank you for your Wonderful Site!!!
    Sincerely,
    Sue

    ADMIN – Hi Susan,

    The first step is to locate a class action law firm in your area and have them evaluate your case.

  84. Karen says:

    HI. I have a claim number, 800008124 from the dogtreatproductssettlement.I also have a letter saying I would be receiving money, but never did,When trying to call the number or email it does not work. Please help.

    ADMIN – Hi Karen,

    Once the number is disconnected it means the admin has closed shop. There is very little you can do at this point to recoup your money.

  85. Janee Toughill says:

    Every time I try to submit my information with my unique id 69DC6A3Z6P and pin code KMA7U7FRPY it says

    Thank You

    ADMIN – Hi Janee,

    Try entering everything in CAPS

  86. Natalya says:

    hi, i did not receive a settlement check ontime for Khoday vs Symantec. as a result, i could not cash it. i did not receive any notifications about payments being mailed either. i called a settlemet administrator, but they refuse to re-issue a check. what can I do? please advice. thank you.

    ADMIN – Hi Natalya,

    Sadly there is nothing you can do. If the postmark is after the expiration date of the check you could potentially reach out to class counsel and they in turn could look into it but the chances of you getting your money are almost none.

  87. Fred says:

    How can I globally opt out of ALL class action lawsuits? I consider this stuff to be nothing more than legalized scams. Sorry, but that is how I feel about it. I rather see this handled in a more respectable manor (like the public handing of a CEO).

    Anyway, back to the subject; in this world of online buying, and mail order delivery, it is difficult to buy things without giving up my name, and address. Class action administrators somehow have special access to obtain address updates. I am very troubled by this. Sorry, but giving up my address to obtain 30 cents is settlement is hardly a bargain. I seek to stop them, but nobody can tell me exactly how. What wisdom do you have to offer?

    When I buy a widget, and some dubious lawyer starts a class action lawsuit, the seller is somehow expected to hand over my name, and address to some legal administrator. I am not notified ahead of time. I am not given the option to review the administrators’ privacy policy. I am not invited to examine their server configuration for security weaknesses (I am a Linux admin). Furthermore my name, and address. ends up on legal documents, that potentially anyone can view. I get exposed in exchange for an opportunity to obtain a check for 20 cents. Seriously?!? I would gladly pay $100 to keep my name off the list.

    With regard to antitrust suits. Let us get real. If I thought the widget was a subject of price fixing, then I would simply not buy it. I made the conscious effort to buy the widget, so I do not see how I am entitled to the petty difference in the price I paid, and the price some court thinks I should have paid. It means even less when the difference comes to less than a dollar.

    Btw: I am here because I bought eight, yes eight, capacitors ten years ago, and someone feels that I paid a few pennies too much for them. My name and address was exposed, against my wishes, over those few pennies!

    ADMIN – Hi Fred,

    If I knew the secret to radical privacy I would happily share it with you. Short of going off the grid and changing your name there is no way to make public records disappear.

    • phred says:

      I have looked myself up. I have no public records after 2008, when I sold my house. I checked with several services that are supposed to be able to obtain public records. They found the record of me buying the house, but the 2008 sale never shows up.

      I “vanished” long before moving to Singapore six years. I just returned to the USA only a month ago. I received the capacitor litigation notice literally days after I got off the plane. What public records could they be using? Nobody posts public records of airline tickets. I have no purchased a home yet. I just arrived here.

      ADMIN – Hi Fred,

      Welcome back. I love Singapore. We did not receive the capacitor notice ourselves and we are class members.Your best bet in finding out how exactly class counsel came about your data is to give them a call. You can find their contact information on the FAQ for the settlement.

    • Fred says:

      I have contacted them a dozen times. They no longer respond. They claim they obtained my name and old address from Digikey. They claim obtained the updated address from Transunion. Digikey claims that they do not release customer addresses. Transunion said that only a bank, insurance company, etc can get my address and they can only do so if they have my social security number.

      I quit my previous job (23 years of tenure) because they illegally gave my name to the chamber of commerce in the city where they had planned to relocate me. That is why I just started a new on Feb 8.

      ADMIN – Hi Fred,

      That seems like a frivolous reason to quit. Are you independently wealthy?

      • Fred says:

        There is nothing frivolous about expecting privacy.

        I grew up very poor. I spent half my life in poverty. I escaped poverty by having a vasectomy. My wife and I are child-free, debt-free, and own our condo outright. Not having children is much like winning a half million in the lotto (over a period of 20 years!). I sold my jeep back in 2012. We did not own a car until a month ago. We had no need. That meant another 20 grand in our bank account over five years. We are middle class, and have nearly 300 grand in the bank because we have no real expenses.

        We have flown all over the world. Now we are settling in the USA. I have a job here. It pays pretty good.

        I only returned from Singapore on Jan 26, She will be here with me by June. She is from a middle class family in Burma.

        ADMIN – Hello Again,

        The issue of privacy is quite complex. Welcome back to the United States. It is good to hear that there are still people with good life-planning skills.

  88. Mary Reilly says:

    I have a Class Action Lawsuit with Transvaginal Mesh, with Lawyers in NYC, since 2014. I’ve had to have a couple sugeries & many other issues involved. I haven’t heard anything from my lawyers in about 6 months. When will this lawsuit settle & what will I get for all I’ve been through & am still going through?

    ADMIN – Hi Mary,

    Those questions are questions that you need to direct to the lawyers handling the case.

  89. ray says:

    I receive class action check I am not entitled to get should I send it .

    ADMIN – Hi Ray,

    You should consult with the class action administrator to make sure that in fact you were not entitled.

  90. ray says:

    I received $3600 class action check from class action I believe I filled out the claim form wrong? should i send the check back?

    ADMIN – Hi Ray,

    From which class action? The administrator would have contacted you if your form was incorrect.

  91. JANICE GILBERT says:

    HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING A REPLACEMENT CHECK IF IT DAMAGE?

    ADMIN – Hi Janice,

    You reach out to the class action administrator.

  92. JANICE GILBERT says:

    please contact me to let me know how can I get a replacement check?

    ADMIN – Hi Janice,

    If the check is expired you are unlikely to get a replacement. If the check is lost and it is within the window of distribution you can go ahead and contact the class action administrator.

  93. Susan J Martinez says:

    I want to know if this class action law suit has been finalized and if so when will payment be sent out?

    ADMIN – Hi Clarence,

    You can check on the status of claims by contacting the class action administrator.

  97. Vicki Tucker says:

    I received a certificate to have my melting dashboard replaced in Florida on my 2008 Nissan Altima. My car was in a bad accident and was in the bodyshop being repaired at the expiration of the certificate. The certificate stated that in extenuating circumstances if you’re not able to get it replaced by the deadline to contact them for an extension. I emailed the administrator before the deadline date and received a reply acknowledging receipt of my request and was told the dealership should still honor my certificate and if I had any problems to contact them. When I took my car in to the dealership they wouldn’t honor it . I tried another dealership (Lee Nissan, Ft Walton Bch, Fl) and was told they had a hard time getting their money and never got paid for the ones they’d already replaced and they wouldn’t replace anymore unless I paid for it upfront! I contacted Jason Gibbs at the lawfirm and he told me he would look into it, call the dealership and he may just reissue my certificate. He requested and I mailed in all the documentation to support the fact that my car was in the bodyshop (when the certificate expired) about 6 weeks being repaired. I also sent him a copy of the letter where they’d ok’d the extension(no deadline date was given). In about a week Mr.Gibbs responded that my certificate was expired and wouldn’t be honored! I would like to know what my recourse is to have the certificate honored since I followed the procedures that was on the certificate and granted an extension?

    ADMIN – Hi Vicki,

    I would contact a private attorney.

  99. vvvelazquez says:

    I filed a claim and did not receive a refund check. What do i need to do? thanks,

    ADMIN – Hi V,

    You need to contact the class action administrator for the case in question.

  100. Corey Genther says:

    I did receive a post card but there is no unique ID # anywhere on it. The bottom of the card is perforated, is it possible that I am missing some of the card? If so is there some way for me to get the ID# sent to me by Email. There is not enough time for me to request a new form by snail mail.

    ADMIN – Hi Corey,

    Your best bet is to contact the class action administrator. If otherwise the lawsuit is the type where you provide evidence and you have the evidence available go ahead and file it.
