    I purchased Time, and ended up receiving 6 others on a monthly basis

    ADMIN – Hi Marlene,

    Please read the terms of the settlement as well as class eligibility. This lawsuit is about privacy concerns.

    I rec’d. a check drawn on Bank of America in Atlanta, GA for $57.81 supposedly in payment of
    your lawsuit. I deposited the check on 4/15/19 and on 4/18/19 was charged a $5.00 fee for a
    charge back. Your check bounced. My bank is Isabella Bank in Canadian Lakes, MI 49346.
    The lawsuit involved is Perlin vs. Time Magazine. I feel you now owe me $62.81. Please contact me at the email address listed below.

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara, Sorry to hear that. However, there appears to be a misunderstanding. We (classactionrebates.com) are *not* the settlement/claims administrator of this case — we are only an online “newspaper” of various class action settlements involving various companies.

  4. William Monson says:

    I applied for this class action lawsuit and never received my money

    • Angelica (Admin) says:

      Hi William, Sorry to hear that. The amount of time that it takes to get your rebate varies a lot. Sometimes it is as soon as 2 months after the settlement closing date. Sometimes it takes much longer. Also, please note that we (classactionrebates.com) are *not* the Settlement Administrator of this case. We only post opportunities for potential Class Members of various settlements on this website. If you’re reading this now and still never received your money, I’m afraid you cannot contact the settlement administrator anymore; they’ve already taken down their website. As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds — unless the Settlement Administrator already disbursed any unclaimed portion of the fund via charity donations. Best of luck.
