    Duke never gave me no rebates or a latter

    Strongly feel Duke users should be entitled to payment, not going towards funding programs which we will never have use of.

  13. Nathaniel Foster says:

    I request the funds that are due to me .

    ADMIN – Hi Nathaniel,

    Did you request the funds by filing a claim?

  14. larry caudill says:

    Where do I sign check?

    ADMIN – Hi Larry,

    You sign checks on the back.

  15. Patricia McGruder says:

    How do i fibd out my status ? I filled out and returned the form. But never had a reply .

    ADMIN – Hi Patricia,

    You need to contact the administrator using the information provided on this page.

  16. Mary Saunders says:

    I have moved since the class action case started, but I have always been a Duke customer. Will I receive a check and will it be forwarded to my new address, which I am still a Duke customer.

    ADMIN – Hi Mary,

    You need to contact the administrator to submit a change of address.

  17. Shirley Burnside says:

    Is it too late to enter as a class member? I just found out about this class action. I no longer live in Cincinnati moved in 2013. However, I lived there for 37 years and was a Duke Energy customer during 2005 through 2013?

    ADMIN – Hi Shirley,

    It is too late to file.

  18. Pamela J Young says:

    Good Evening,
    I had file for the law suit but I don’t remember if my application were accepted. How can I find out ??

    ADMIN – Hi Pamela,

    I encourage you to contact the admin using the information we provide on the main page.

  19. Antoinette says:

    I want to know how to find out if im getting a check and or if I’m eligible

    ADMIN – Hi Antoinette,

    Did you file?

  20. Richard Watson says:

    I received a postcard size check from Huntington showing my rebate amount. My question is, “Based on the size of this alleged check, is this for real and should I really take it to my bank and deposit it”? Usually, checks are bigger.

    ADMIN – Hi Richard,

    Many checks are postcard size.

  21. Joanna Estrada says:

    I didn’t even know a law suit existed. I was a Duke customer at this time. Let me know if I can still get a rebate?

    ADMIN – HI Joanna,

    I don’t think so but I encourage you to contact the admin.

    • Linda Thompson says:

      I saw the reply to Joanna Estrada from the Admin where they Admin says to contact the Admin. Well, how do you do that?

      ADMIN – Hi Linda,

      I am the administrator of this wonderful page. The administrator for the class action is listed at the bottom of each page under “contact”

  22. Diane Multner says:

    My husband and I never received a post card or claim form to fill out. Just now hearing on the news that checks are being mailed out and people are receiving their checks. We pay lots to Duke every month (and I know that you are not Duke Energy). We deserve to be part of this settlement. I do not think that if you are a Duke customer that a claim form should have to be automatically filled out. Every Duke Customer should be entitled to a refund if we were overcharged for electric. Which we apparently were.

  23. Sandra J Mays says:

    I file a claim then was told I didn’t qualified for a rebate in 2005 the account was in my late husband’s name he past away in 2006 and in 2007 I had the account put in my name so would like to know why I don’t qualified all you have to do is look at the account I’m should be entitle to one.

    ADMIN – HI Sandra,

    The administrator is best qualified to answer that question. Scroll up and look for “contact” to get their info.

  24. Linda Thompson says:

    So, if I didn’t submit a claim, I am not entitled to a rebate check even though I have been a paying customer of Duke Energy here in Southern Ohio long before it was Duke Energy? Since I evidently didn’t send back the paperwork, because I haven’t gotten a check.

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,


  25. Brandy Watson says:

    ADMIN – Hi Linda,

  28. Betty L Clift says:

    I just want to know where my rebate check is for Duke Energy? It was suppose to be mailed out months ago according to the local News Media! Date is 03/04/2107. I cannot get a hold of anyone to answer this question.

    ADMIN – Hi Betty,

    This settlement was paid many months ago. Consider reaching out to the class action admin but I have the feeling you won’t be able to recoup.

    • Mary Durbin says:

      Who is the administrator?

      ADMIN – Hi Mary,

      Scroll up and read the section titled, “contact”

      • Mary Durbin says:

        The number is no longer working.

        ADMIN – Hi Mary,

        That means the administration has closed shop and you no longer have legal recourse.

  38. Julie Wallace says:

    I never received my claim … honestly, I forgot about it until I came upon the paperwork and the claim number. Can someone check about my claim reimbursement? Happy to provide the claim number in a different place. Please advise. Thanks, Julie Wallace

    ADMIN – Hi Julie,

    You are way too late. The administration for this settlement has finalized distribution and closed shop.

    • Julie Wallace says:

      As an aside, I went up to the top of this string and sent an email to the address listed – but I got a failure to send, as it is not a valid email address. I will call the number listed above tomorrow, but I am not hopeful it is still active. Do you have any details available that may be new or updated? Thanks, Julie Wallace

      ADMIN – Hi Julie,

      This case was paid and finalized several years ago. You no longer have legal recourse.
