Www.SprintSurchargeSettlement.com – Sprint Surcharge Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
Do you get upset if a company charges you extra money every month? I would if that happened to me. Well this case is all about that. Apparently Sprint charges the customer extra each month. This was called the Sprint Surcharges. So if you have a Sprint account and got this extra surcharge at any time between January 1, 2007 to October 8, 2013, then you are included in the case and you will be able to to get something from this case. This is only for individual accounts. If you have a government or a corporate account, then this case does not apply to you. You can find out about the sub-class at the www.SprintSurchargeSettlement.com site. Basically the sub-class is for all those who had to pay the extra and who did not even get information from the company about the increases. This is for all those who have the Individual Liable Accounts.
For the subclass, there are a number of time periods. These time periods pertain to when the accounts were opened or suspended. All those eligible in either class will get some kind of compensation. For example, those in the Fee Notice Sub-Class will have to choose either cash or other forms of benefit. All those eligible will have to submit a claim form to request payment. The forms have to be in by March 24, 2014. Any later than that and you will not get to get the benefits. So do go to the Sprint Surcharge Class Action Lawsuit Settlement site at www.SprintSurchargeSettlement.com in order to get more details about the benefits. Like in most settlements, you will have a chance to opt out if you want by February 14, 2014.
Opting out means that you will not get any compensation in this case. It basically means that you do not want to be a part of this case. This is because if you decide to do this, then you will be able to sue the company on your own. This means that you will be able to sue on this issue. Those who do not opt out will not be able to sue the company for this issue. So you will have to decide if you want to be in or if you want to be out. This is a very important decision so do take time to think about it. Once you take action, you will be bound by that action.
The final approval hearing will take place on April 10, 2014. This will occur at 9:30 in the morning at the court house in Columbus, Georgia. You can attend this meeting to listen to any appeals or any spoken objections. Of course you can send in your written objections too. The judge will consider both types of objections before making the decision to either approval or disapprove the settlement. The actual lawsuit is also know as Eric Barkwell, et al. v. Sprint Communications Company, L. P., et al. The case number is 4:09-CV-56. You of course have to be in the United States in order to take part in this case.
Now if you do decide to take part, all those in the Fee Notice Sub-Class can choose to get either the cash benefit which is $1 per account. You can get this in the form of either an account credit or a check. The non-cash benefits include a 30 minutes calling card for domestic long distance calls, a 30% discount if you buy any item at a Sprint store and a waiver of the activation fee. The activation fee is for $36 and this is for new line of service. If you file a claim form, you will not have to provide any proof. However, the information you provide on the form itself must be accurate and truthful. If you are found to have lied on the form, then you will not be eligible to get any kind of compensation.
If you need more information, you should go over the Settlement Agreement. If you do not have this, you can get this online at the site. There is also a phone number of the claims administrator that you can call. This is a good thing to do if you do not understand the legal documents. Do not be afraid to ask questions because many people do not know what to do.
