    I don’t remember when I was contacted on this Class Action Lawsuit SDNY, case no 15CV09746 PAE on Sterling Infosystems, Inc. Today, January 5 2021, received a check of $47 of the $15, 000,000.00.

  6. CHRISTOPHER KYLLONEN says:

    I RECIEVED A CHECK FOR $47 AND CHANGE — OUT OF 15,000,000! THE REPORT COST ME A LOT MORE THAN $47 AND CHANGE…

  7. Beverly Sniegowski says:

    My concern is what information fell into the hands of the credit bureaus that may be incorrect. If I am one of many who received this “settlement”, I feel I have the right to know what is in print about me. Can you supply this information? I recently received a credit report apology from my bank saying everything is ok now. Does this have anything to do with this case? Confused and Concerned. RSVP ASAP.

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi, Beverly. Thanks for your message. However, since we are only a newspaper of class action settlements, we have no direct connection to the cases we report about. As soon as we hear of open settlements, we post the news here; what happens to the settlement after that, we no longer post about. It’s up to our subscribers to follow up directly with their respective claims/settlement administrators and/or check directly on the settlement website (always linked above) for updates. Hope you eventually get in touch with the settlement admin.
