    my name was used to purchase other things after i got my title loan with title max

    ADMIN – Hi John,

    It sounds like you were the victim of identity theft.

  2. Gregory Bullitt says:

    Can you please send me a claim form to 333 Melrose Dr #32c Richardson TX 75080

    ADMIN – Hi Gregory,

    I can’t. I am not the class action administrator.

  3. Shanica Hargis says:

    After I took out a title pawn I was never late but they called my job and home a week before my payment was due as if I didn’t know when I had to pay.. after the loan was voided they harassed me for 2 years calling

    ADMIN – Hi Shanica,

    This is not about harassment. This is about accessing information without your permission through tapping public records.

  4. Daffaine Shannon says:

    Can you’ll tell me a little more of what is going on cause I need to see do I need to fill out some paperwork out and I don’t understand what title max did

    ADMIN – Hi Daffaine,

    TitleMax accessed public records to obtain a potential customer list. If you were among those in that list you will or have received a postcard with a claim number.

  5. asim says:

    ADMIN – Hi Asim,

    Reach out to the class action administrator.

  6. Andrew Hove says:

    Still not sure why or how they got my numbers.

    ADMIN – Hi Andrew

    Public records

  7. Sylvia A. Stewart Johnson says:

    Is This For Texas ONLY?

    ADMIN – Hi Sylvia,

    I don’t see a state exclusion on the class eligibility but based on the facts of the case I suspect most class members are in Texas.

  8. Lidia Brower says:

    Lived in San Antonio. Purchased a title loan thru Title max. I should receive a claim # at some point I believe. I moved several times since then as well as out of state.

    I will call class action admin. thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Lidia,

    Please refer to the terms of the settlement. This is not about having had a loan. It is about securing leads in a way that is not legal.

  9. Michelle Brower says:

    Please send me a claim form. I have moved several times since and had a title loan.

    2073 S. Quail Avenue
    Yuma AZ 85364

    ADMIN – Hi Michelle,

    This is not for individuals that held a loan. It is for individuals whose records were pulled illegally for the purpose of marketing.

  10. ROBYN FRATTA says:

    Was this only in Texas?

    ADMIN – Hi Robyn,

    The data was pulled from a Texas database but I don’t see anything on class eligibility that excludes other areas of the country.

  11. C. Stewart says:

    We have NEVER used Title Max, nor will we ever use them. However for about a year we started receiving junk mail from them addressed to our home (state of Georgia). Is this included in the claims or is it restricted to Texas residents?

    ADMIN – Hi Mr. Stewart,

    In looking at the class eligibility section I don’t see an exclusion by state. Where did you see that?

  12. C. Stewart says:

    My apologies, I made this assumption from the “Case Summary” section where it states “…from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles.”

    I take it there is no exclusion? Thanks so much.
    Ms Stewart

    ADMIN – Hi Stewart,

    It appears that way. I encourage you to file a claim if you believe you are a class member.

  13. stadadius hill says:

    my name was use after I did a title loan

    ADMIN – Hi S,

    Irrelevant for this settlement.

  14. Ana Carter says:

    How can I confirm they have my new address. I completed my claim form and included my new address. Will that be sufficient?

    Thanks in Advance

    ADMIN – Hi Ana,

    If your claim form has your new address that is what the admin will use to send your check. You can confirm by calling the admin.

  15. Teena Franklin says:

    Title max is a rip off they give you the loans and then harass you to death. Ne.ver will use them again

    ADMIN – Hi Teena,

    Thank you for taking the time to voice your opinion. Please review the terms of eligibility and file a claim if applicable

  16. Kendri Horace says:

    If we received the form, When should we expect settlement payment?

    ADMIN – Hi Kendri,

    Settlements are generally paid after the fairness hearing and once all appeals have cleared. That can take from months to years.

  17. Christine Lopez says:

    How do we find out if our names are on list. I have also moved several times since the loan

    ADMIN – Hi Christine,

    You can reach out to the class action administrator using the information we provide above next to the subheading titled “contact”

  19. Mattie Brown says:

    I’ve sent my claim form on and copy of government issued ID a couple weeks ago when will I recieve my check

    ADMIN – Hi Mattie,

    Checks can take from months to years to be issued.

  20. R. Murphy says:

    I received a letter in the mail. I moved from Texas to Tennessee in early March. I have sent in a copy of my license and the claim form. How long does it take to process it and send a check?

    ADMIN – Hi R,

    There is no set time. Each case is different. It can take from months to years depending on appeals and other legal proceedings that take place after the deadline.

  21. Jermaine Guidry says:

    Do you know the status of the case, since the deadline has passed on March 16: what’s the final decision as far as settlement or payout?

    ADMIN – Hi Jermaine,

    Too early to know the deadline was on 3/16. It takes a few weeks if not months before we hear something.

  22. Harrell Helton in care of Deanna Wooley says:

    When are the checks going to be mailed? I need the money to buy my son a headstone for his grave.

    ADMIN – Hi Harrell,

    Settlements are paid after the deadline has passed and all appeals have cleared. This can take from months to years.

  23. Jill Jackson says:

    I sent the form back with a copy of my Id. I just got something in the mail that said I did not include it with my forms, but I did. Now you’re company is requesting my id again, along with my social security number? This makes me uncomfortable, as I am a recent victim of identity theft. Why do you need so much personal information?

    ADMIN – Hi Jill,

    We are not the class action administrators. We are simply a website that publishes class actions.

  35. James Bolden says:

    I renewed a loan, and now I’m paying 26.00 a day. I asked the loan agent why my interest is so high. He stated he didn’t know and he’ll get back with me on it. My payments went from 590.00 to 814.00 a month, so I went back in to speak to him again. He stated the computer was having problems and he’ll get back to me. Again, he never gotten back with me. So now this person is gone and I’m paying 780.00 a month on a 6,000.00 loan.
