Back in 2017 I predicted it would be enough for two lattes at Starbucks (message #39). I got $25+ - should cover those 2 lattes and maybe something decadent from their bakery.

Looks like the payout was $8.34 per call. The more they bugged you, the more you got.

Now I know. Looking forward to my $50 bucks.
I guess the $8.34 was my spam call check.

Oh well, on to filling out the Google claim I just received.

I had forgotten about this. I received a check for $25 and change. Not going to complain about it.

Probably the only time in my life I'll get any monetary compensation for the thousand of spam calls to my phone.

Today, eight months after getting a settlement check for $50, I received another check - this time for $2.50. The class action settlement that keeps on paying.

Yup, us too! First check was less than $10, but we also got another one yesterday for $2.50.

Interesting. We never received a first check but got one yesterday for $2.50.

We have vivid memories of many, many of these calls, so I wonder if we were awarded a first check but never received it? Anyone know how/if I could check on this? To think we submitted all that 'proof' for a whopping $2.50 is really annoying. Can't even get one Starbucks Frappuccino for that!


ETA: I was wrong. We did get a first check for $8.34 back in August. I thought that was for another class action case but it was actually for this one.

We actually submitted two claims, one for my wife's cell phone and one for our landline. We only received settlement checks for her cell.

I looked yesterday to see if there was a way to check on the status of the other claim, but I couldn't find a link that allows you to enter specific claim number.

Received 2nd settlement check for $2.50. Now I have to decide what to do with these new found riches.
