    We had Ambit as a electricity supplier.

    ADMIN – Hi Ann,

    If you meet all the other requirements set forth under class eligibility you would be a class member.

    • Catherine M Tack says:

      When should I receive my settlement check? I am moving at the end of August so my address will change.

        So are we getting a part of the settlement or not? And when will we know

        ADMIN – Hi Sam,

        If you are a class member whose claim has been validated you will get your share. Most people don’t find out until they receive their check.

          Some appeals have taken a decade.

  9. Ken Elliott says:

  10. William Gormley says:

    I GOT TO THE CLAIM BUT HOW DO I ENTER THE INFORMATION ON THE FORM

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    Use the link provided.

  11. KAREN LANGE says:

    I went to a training seminar on selling Ambit Energy, and I am appalled that I was dragged into this horrible scam!!! Shame on you, Ambit Energy!!! BOOO!!!!

  12. MOZES GUTTMAN CPA says:

    I received a card to verify my address and would like to submit a claim form but only have a ‘CLASS MEMBER ID” on the card and not a claimant code nor confirmation code.

    ADMIN – Hi Mozes,

    Please reach out to the class action administrator

  13. Todd M says:

    I filed a claim online once I got the notice in the mail but I have yet to hair anything back on a settlement and the amount..

    ADMIN – Hi Todd,

    Reach out to the class action administrator.

  14. Elizabeth Mesa says:

    I was a customer of Ambit Energy during that time period. I will send my form tomorrow Saturday June 16.Will Be late? PLEASE

    ADMIN – Hi Elizabeth,

    If it is postmarked prior to the deadline I guess you should be ok

  15. Vera Cropf says:

    When will, we the people, know when to expect the cash settlement? After June 27th?

    ADMIN – Hi Vera,

    Not necessarily. The best approach to settlements is to simply have patience.

  16. Ron Maurer says:

    One of the disturbing things about being part of this class is the minimal or lack of information we have been receiving. Other than the initial notification, I have had to make numerous calls and emails to try and get some basic information.
    It is not about worry about when I received a portion of the settlement, but rather wanting to be part of the process as a member of the class. Would it be to much for periodic updates? The hearing on June 27th was termed a FINAL HEARING so I assume there should be some closure to this.

    ADMIN – Hi Ron,

    We totally understand. The only way that is going to change is through changes in the law that place additional requirements on settlements which will likely result in increased fees for the administrators and the attorneys.

  17. lynda says:

    I filled out the claim form I received and have not heard back yet

    ADMIN – Hi Lynda,

    The deadline was barely a few days ago. Settlements are not paid until all appeals have cleared and the final hearing has taken place.

  18. Valerie Ficarella says:

    I was enrolled with ambit energy for a year.Submitted a claim form and still have not received my rebate.

    ADMIN – Hi Valerie,

    This settlement has not been paid out yet.

  19. Karen says:

    Has the final hearing taken place? Any appeals filed?

    ADMIN – Hi Karen,

    Final hearing took place. So far I have not heard of any appeals.

  20. Judith Calbi says:

    Was this lawsuit settled? If so, what was the outcome please?

    ADMIN – Hi Judith,

    After the fairness hearing there is a gap of time to allow for appeals to be filed.

  21. sean mcgann says:

    the only question worth knowing is how much and will I have to pay taxes on it?

    ADMIN – Hi Sean,

    The majority of settlements are taxable unless it is a straightforward reimbursement.

  22. Jacqueline Ortega says:

    Has the deadline passed and have all appeals been cleared as of today?

    ADMIN – Hi Jaqueline,

    The deadline has passed. I don’t have any updates regarding appeals.

  23. Kevin crafton says:

    When will the website be updated ? The fairness hearing g is over. When can we expect payment to processed and mailed to us claiments, it’s usually no later than 30 days..

    ADMIN – Hi Kevin,

    It is frequently more than 30 days. Your best bet is to contact the class action administrator to obtain additional details.

    ADMIN – Hi Stacy,

    The court is now waiting on potential appeals. If none arise they will move to the next step.

  27. Aloma Millings says:

    When will proceeds be paid out

    ADMIN – Hi Aloma,

    Usually the judge allows about 90 days after the final hearing for appeals and such. If those clear or there are none the settlement moves to the next step which is distribution.

    Looks like there was a final document added on July 13th but I don’t understand the legal mumbo jumbo.. It looks like only a few mentioned names were getting anything. Can someone confirm this!

    ADMIN – Hi Liz,

    You are reading the amount that will be given to the class representatives and not the class members. The amount for class members remains as disclosed in the original document.

  30. Lester quick says:

    How much and how long will it be before I get rebate

    ADMIN – Hi Lester,

    Since the deadline was just on June 18 we now need to wait for the final hearing and appeals to take place.

    I received this today from the Class Action Administrator:

    ‘Thank you for your email. The Court must submit an Order approving the settlement as final. Once that occurs, there may be appeals. If there are any appeals, we do not know how long it may take to resolve those. If there are no appeals, payments to eligible class members will likely occur in early fall.”

    • Tammy boyd says:

      I just found out about this. Why was I never contacted saying I was owed a refund. Why was I never contacted? So now I don’t get a refund? That doesn’t seem right.

      ADMIN – Hi Tammy, I’m afraid we can’t answer your questions, as we have *nothing to do with this case*. Just to clarify: we are *not* the settlement administrators of this case. We are an online *newspaper* of class action settlements. Cheers.

  34. KEVIN D MORTON says:

    It is very hard to fathom that all of this time, I was paying high fees and rates and was totally being sidelined by what I earnestly thought was a reputable company. My feelings of hurt should disappear once I receive the refund payment. I’ve read everyone’s questions and acknowledge your responses as well. I’m posting this to thank you for your time and patience for putting up with us people that just want what is due them. SO patiently, I wait

    ADMIN – Hi Kevin,

    I encourage you to follow us on Facebook. As soon as someone notifies us of having received a check we post an announcement allowing you to be in the loop and giving you enough time to escalate if you don’t receive your check.

  51. Bridgette Sanchez says:

    I would like to know did any payment were sent out? Cause I’m part of this claim and haven’t received any check . Claimant Code AEH2014085. Confirmation Code 320396.

    ADMIN – Hi Bridgette,

    You need to check with the class action administrator.

    • John says:

      Hi Bridgette, I don’t think checks will be mailed until late October or even mid November as the e mail I got says late Fall,
      “The distribution of settlement benefits for eligible claim forms is anticipated to occur in late fall.” But they also used the word “anticipated” which to me means they’re not sure..

      • Ron Maurer says:

        Hi John,
        Thanks for the clarification. It is sad that we are not updated by the class action administrators. They should be posting things periodically. The last was June 27th.

        • John says:

          Hi Ron, I agree with you. I was taken advantage of by Ambit energy for 7 years both gas and electricity. So im anxious to see what the final out come will be. Would be nice to get some of my money back. And not be taken advantage of again. I guess we just wait and see.

  52. Ron Maurer says:

    Hi John,
    Thanks so much for your comment. So I guess right now its the waiting game. I am not sure exactly how long I was with Ambit. I wish there was a way of finding out.
    Stay well and if I hear anything I will let you know.

  53. Kelly says:

    I’m wondering if there’s a way those of us who are part of the class action lawsuit can get email updates on the status of the payout so that we don’t have to keep checking the website for a status that never seems to be there.

    ADMIN – Hi Kelly,

    That is not customary.

    • Andrew Palmer says:

      Good point Kelly. In view of the fact that were were told at the beginning of the month there would be an update in ‘a week or two’.
      It is really shameful how members of the class who have representation are kept in the dark about a litigation they are parties to.

  54. Shanel says:

    Please provide the number for counsel…. Or email address…I mailed the information back earlier this year….I would like to make sure I am included… Have not heard anything back from them.

  55. Brock Tegrelli says:

    PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE CLERK OF THE COURT, THE JUDGE, OR AMBIT ENERGY WITH INQUIRIES ABOUT THE SETTLEMENT

    This is what is on the website. My question is, who else should we contact whereby we can get a straight answer instead of empty promises?

    Maybe writing the judge may get me some answers?

    ADMIN – Hi Brock,

    Class counsel.

    • Yolonda says:

      I wanted to know what phase of the lawsuit are the lawyers who handle this lawsuit at? It’s almost I to get in contact with anyone and they have not kept their promise of updating their web site.

      ADMIN – Hi Yolanda,

      Administrators only update their website when there is forward progress.

  56. Ron Maurer says:

    I received this from the lawyers handling the case.
    Do not assume you are due payment just because you got a letter from them. Check and see if you are eligible.

    “I have followed up with both the claims administrator and Ambit and unfortunately you are not entitled to receive a payment from the settlement. According to Ambit’s records (attached) you were an Ambit Guaranteed Savings Plan (“GSP”) customer for 23 months. The first GSP savings year you saved $48.54. The second savings period was only 11 months so no legacy calculation was performed because the GSP requires you to be a customer for 12 months in order to receive the benefit”

    • Debbie Leonardo says:

      I received exact same letter, same amounts, etc. WTH….I’m sure we couldn’t have saved exactly the same amounts.

      • Shanel Wilson says:

        Where do you receive the letter from with the amount calculations…
        I was with them for 5 yrs….I would like to know how much I should expect….

    Claims processing and benefit calculation is currently ongoing. The distribution of settlement benefits for eligible claims is estimated to occur near the end of the year.

    Its now November when are these payments going out thank you Ida Vazquez

    ADMIN – Hi Ida,

    Have you made an effort to contact the administrator?

  62. John says:

    I don’t think we will ever see a payment.

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    Happens on occasion.

  63. Yolanda Huins says:

    At first they were saying late fall . Now they are saying the end of the year. One website says checks will be mailed out in November. Which one is it. I was able to confirm I’m apart of the class action lawsuit but the amount I will receive they won’t state.

    • John says:

      Yolanda, how were you able to confirm. I sent emails to the attorneys that handled the case as well as the settlement administrators asking for confirmation that I had a valid claim and never got a reply. Is there another party I should contact?

    • Tammie Davis says:

      Hey how did you find out you were part of the suit??

      ADMIN – Hi Tammie,

      Most people were notified via mail.

  64. nan says:

    Obviously this refund is looking bogus too as Ambit was. I have been involved in class action suits before and have received refund within a couple months of court date. So what is the problem here?????? I will just go on social media to let others know not to hold breathe on this one wont happen!!!

    ADMIN – Hi Nan,

    Some settlements take months others take years.

  65. sean says:

    I wondering do they hve to pay us before they pay themselves

    ADMIN – Hi Sean,

    Generally all the monies are distributed at the same time. Last one to get paid is the class action administrator.

  66. Jeff says:

    I feel like we are being screwed, every month I send the claims adjusters an email, and get a reply adding another month onto when to expect a check. This whole processes seems bogus and extremely frustrating, we should start adding late fees and interest just like the utilities companies do …lol
    Other then the claims adjuster is there somebody we can talk to about the oversight of the settlement. 26,500,000 is a lot of cash , there has to be some kind of checks and balances in place to assure the cash gets where it belongs , I would hope .

    ADMIN – Hi Jeff,

    Class action settlements take years to resolve. This is the norm.

  67. Tammie Davis says:

    Hello,

    I competed a claim form over 6 months ago and haven’t heard ANYTHING as of yet!

    ADMIN – Hi Tammie,

    Nobody has received this settlement yet.

  68. Yolonda Huins says:

    I sent them an email and they returned it stating that I am apart of the class action lawsuit .

    ADMIN – Hhi Yolonda,

    You should forward the one proving that you are.

  69. Yolonda Huins says:

    I still have the original email that was sent to me confirming that I am apart of the class action lawsuit. I’m going to try to post it.

    I wanted to know what’s going on with the class action lawsuit? I submitted my claim form in April of this year. How will.I know if I’m included. Your web site has not been updated and you can not reach anyone over the phone.

  72. George H Bobar says:

    Still waiting for ANY sort of correspondence from ANYONE ! Filed claim April 23 2018. Shameful.

  73. sean says:

    maybe they are waiting for next years tax cycle to begin. People with money don’t think like us.

  74. Ron Maurer says:

    I would suggest you guys check and don’t just think that because you got correspondence that you are automatically entitled to a settlement. I got correspondence from the course and submitted my paperwork and when I checked further I found I was not eligible because of a months time short. Or some reason. I wish they had not have sent me the paperwork.
    I am not trying to dampen anyones spirits, please read what I got from the attorneys:

    “I have followed up with both the claims administrator and Ambit and unfortunately you are not entitled to receive a payment from the settlement. According to Ambit’s records (attached) you were an Ambit Guaranteed Savings Plan (“GSP”) customer for 23 months. The first GSP savings year you saved $48.54. The second savings period was only 11 months so no legacy calculation was performed because the GSP requires you to be a customer for 12 months in order to receive the benefit”

    It is obvious this entire issue has been mishandled from start to finish. Imagine if we had competent lawyers, if we would be left in the dark like we have been for all these months.

    Keep pushing on. I wish you all the best and a happy holody.

    Ron

  75. Louise says:

    Any update on the settlement checks being issued? I have not received any updates.

    ADMIN – Hi Louise,

    Scroll through the comments. Some class members have unverified updates regarding timelines.

  76. Yolonda Huins says:

    They are saying the beginning of 2019 now. They went from late fall to the end of the year to next year. Who knows when they will be issued.

    ADMIN – Hi Yolanda,

    That is pretty common with settlements.

  77. Claudia Clarke (Spencer) says:

    They better issue them within a week or we will file another lawsuit

    ADMIN – Hi Mr. President,

    I don’t think there is precedent for that but you can always try and tell me all about it once it is all said and done.

  80. Tammie Renee Davis says:

    None at the moment

    ADMIN – Hi Debbie,

    I saw posts about it but I have not been able to confirm or secure a photo of a check.

      This was the response I received today.

      Thank you for contacting the Ambit New York Energy Settlement Administrator.

      Looking in our data base you claim has been accepted. The calculation of claim benefits is currently ongoing. The distribution of settlement benefits to eligible claimants will occur at the end of January 2019. If you need to update your address or contact information, you can do so at any time by writing to this email address. For more information, please visit http://www.nyenergysavingssettlement.com.

  82. Karen D says:

    What is the latest status here? The end of the year is quickly approaching and that was the last estimated timeframe I knew of. “Settlement benefits for eligible claims is estimated to occur near the end of the year”.
    Can anyone advise of the most current status? Have there been any disbursements?
    Why are the claimants not being notified??

    ADMIN – Hi Karen,

    It appears distribution will take place in January

  83. Charles says:

    What is the payout amount approximately?

    ADMIN – Hi Charles,

    If you enrolled as an Ambit customer prior to February 1, 2012:

    If you submit a valid Claim Form, you will have a claim that is equal to 77.5% of the amount you paid on the New York Select Variable Plan that is above the amount you would have paid if you remained on the Guaranteed Savings Plan during that same time.

    By way of example, if you were enrolled as an Ambit customer on the Guaranteed Savings Plan on January 1, 2011, and were rolled to the New York Select Variable Plan on January 1, 2012, and paid Ambit $200 dollars more while on the New York Select Variable Plan than you would have paid if on the Guaranteed Savings Plan during that same time period, your claim will be calculated as: $200 x .775 = $155

    If you enrolled as an Ambit customer on or after February 1, 2012:

    If you submit a valid Claim Form, you will have a claim that is equal to 50% of the amount you paid on the New York Select Variable Plan that is above the amount you would have paid if you remained on the Guaranteed Savings Plan during that same time.

    By way of example, if you were enrolled as an Ambit customer on the Guaranteed Savings Plan on February 15, 2012, and were rolled to the New York Select Variable Plan on December 15, 2012, and paid Ambit $200 dollars more while on the New York Select Variable Plan than you would have paid if on the Guaranteed Savings Plan during that same time period, your claim will be calculated as: $200 x .50 = $100

    The difference in the Roll-off Claim formulas is based on a Court ruling that persons who became Ambit customers on or after February 1, 2012 were given contracts that unambiguously disclosed that customers would be rolled to the New York Select Variable Plan, and therefore, persons who enrolled with Ambit after February 1, 2012 have weaker Roll-off Claims than persons who enrolled with Ambit before February 1, 2012.

    Ambit has agreed to pay Roll-Off Claims submitted by Eligible Class Members who submit timely and valid claim forms in an amount up to $26.5 million, less an allocated portion of settlement administration costs and Court-awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses. If the total amount of Roll-Off Claims is less than $26.5 million, you will receive the total amount of your Roll-Off Claim (if any). If the total amount of Roll-Off Claims exceeds $26.5 million, you will receive a pro rata portion of your Roll-Off Claim (if any).

    You may also receive a Guaranteed Savings Plan recalculation:

    If you properly and timely submit a valid Claim Form and were on a Guaranteed Savings Plan (whether or not you were rolled off a Guaranteed Savings Plan to a New York Select Variable Plan), Ambit will recalculate any Guaranteed Savings Plan calculations that Ambit previously performed for you during the Class Period.

    If the recalculation shows that Ambit owes you any money related to the time you were on the Guaranteed Savings Plan during the period from September 5, 2010 through and including February 22, 2018, you will have a claim that is equal to that amount. The calculation may show that Ambit does not owe you any money, in which case you will not receive a payment for this aspect of the settlement. Ambit has agreed to pay amounts owed based on recalculations up to $3.25 million, less an allocated portion of settlement administration costs and Court-awarded attorneys’ fees and expenses. If the total amount of claims is less than $3.25 million, you will receive the total amount of your claim (if any). If the total amount of claims exceeds $3.25 million, you will receive a pro rata portion of your claim (if any).

  84. Stacy Paradis says:

    After emailing they say January. and if you goto the lawyers website it also say January

  85. Krystina Falcone says:

    Hi have not received one email or letter in the mail besides the claims form . So what is going on with this lawsuit??

    ADMIN – Hi Krystina,

    If I recall correctly this will be paid at the beginning of the year.

  86. Duwan Baker says:

    NOTICE OF SETTLEMENT CHECKS BEING MAILED IN MID TO LATE JANUARY 2019
    The Court has approved the Class Action Settlement, and the Claims Administrator will mail out settlement checks in mid to late January 2019.
    If you don’t receive any payment, it is because you are not eligible for a benefit as explained in the Class Notice, or your claim submission was untimely.
    Thank you for your patience.

  87. Jenny says:

    If you are not entitled to the settlement will they at least send a letter stating so?

    ADMIN – Hi Jenny,

    Yes

  88. Sean McGann says:

  90. Angela Purcell says:

    I filed against Ambit and have not heard anything but am currently fighting my bill as I am in the Variable plan and they messed up my billing… I went from a total bill of $117/month to just under $500 and they are indeed fighting me on this. I signed up and have called in keeping the Guaranteed Savings when noted it is time to update and now this.

    Any information would be great! I have tried dropping but in doing so they do this slap me with a high bill… I am fighting these bills but with much stress!

    ADMIN – Hi Angela,

    Reach out to the class action administrator to check on the specifics of your claim.

  91. Chrissie Sobon says:
