    Please provide me a claim number to apply for this class action settlement. A search back in 2014 stated that I had some kind of a warrant in Pennsylvania when I have never lived there or traveled through there or know anyone there. It prevented me from getting a good state job, since I could not prove to my prospective employer that the information was incorrect during the application process.

    ADMIN – Hi Jennifer,

    Think about us as a newspaper of class action settlements. If you believe you are part of this settlement contact the administrator directly to obtain your number. Usually they send it to you via mail but perhaps it was lost by the mail service.

    I tried to get a new job and my possible employer told me there was a felony on my record during the last 7 years (untrue) and I lost out on a good job. I tried to open a claim and I don’t have an ID number.

    ADMIN – Hi Charles,

    Reach out to the class action administrator to see if they can hep you out.
