    What were the results of the lawsuit?

    ADMIN – Hi Lorene,

    The fairness hearing took place on January 27. It will be a little bit before we know the result.

  2. Kathy Brown says:

    You are obviously holding my warranted recompense for $ $ 11.50
    not fair

    ADMIN – Hi Kathy,

    We are not personally holding a thing. We are simply an informational website.

  3. Elizabeth says:

    What date are we to expected to receive the check?

    ADMIN – Hi Elizabeth,

    This is currently under appeal.

    • Gorbir says:

      How can this be under appeal when it says above “McAfee denies doing anything wrong, but has agreed to settle to avoid trial”? Are they appealing their decision to settle?

      ADMIN – Hi Gorbir,

      The exact wording of the current update is as follows:

      The court has granted final approval of the settlement. However, an appeal of that decision has been filed with an appeals court. Distribution of benefits (payments and value certificates) in this matter will take place after this appeal and any others are resolved and the settlement becomes final and effective

  4. Elizabeth says:

    What date are we expected to receive this check?

    ADMIN – Hi Elizabeth,

    This is currently under appeal.

  5. Debra Rodriguez says:

    My personal ID# REF009039317. I understand this case is being repealed, but what does that mean to me? Debra Rodriguez

    ADMIN – Hi Debra,

    A repeal is when a judge finds that the case is not valid, is null it does not have legal merit.

  6. A. Edwards says:

  10. Paul says:

    I had McAfee anti virus in 2011 , How can I get proof of purchase ?

    ADMIN – Hi Paul,

    I believe McAfee keeps records associated to email address.

  11. Esther Hancox says:

    On today McAfee charged me 69.99. I want all my money back. The lawyers get 2.4 million and we get $11.50 for five years. This is totally unfair.

    But my question is how can I get McAfee to stop charging my debit card.

    ADMIN – Hi Esther,

    You contact them to cancel your service
