    I filed on this claim several months ago and I never received an answer to the application and I did use the services of said company and I was really disappointed in the results/ There is still a building downtown Newark and they seem to have no problems. I was defrauded. That is so sad.

    ADMIN – Hi Loretta,

    Settlements take a long time to be paid. You first wait for the deadline, then for the fairness hearings and finally for all the appeals to clear. Once all the appeals have cleared the class action administrator has to validate the claims prior to sending the checks.

  7. jean nicoli says:

    hi does anyone know what that means on the form where it asks you to check one ——-recalculate my rebate based on the formula etc or add $1 to my settlement payment check or a $2bill credit ?

  8. Shymecca says:

    Do anyone know what we recalculate my rebate based on formula described in settlement and issue me a check if IDT owes me any money I understand the rebate calculation may show that IDT does not owe me any money
