Www.eMachinesFloppyDiskSettlement.com – eMachines Computer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement
You may be able to get compensation in the eMachines Computer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement if you bought an eMachines computer. The reason for the lawsuit is that the company sold the computers that had defective parts. This meant that you could have lost your data. You will have to fill out the claim form which you can get at the www.eMachinesFloppyDiskSettlement.com site. You will have to send this in by July 15, 2013. If you are eligible to take part, you should have received some kind of notice in the mail or in your email. In that notice, there could be a claim number. If you have this claim number you can enter it in the text box provided. Your claim number is an 11 digit number.
If you do not have this number, you will still be able to get the eMachines Computer Class Action Lawsuit Settlement claim form at the www.eMachinesFloppyDiskSettlement.com site. You will select option 2. Your next step is to enter your personal information. All you are doing here is downloading the claim form. You are not actually submitting it. You will have to fill it out and mail it by the due date. You will also have to provide proof that you bought the computer. If you decide that you do not want to submit the form after you have requested it online, it is completely okay. This means that you are not obligated to submit.
If you are not sure if your computer is included, you can go to the website where the model numbers are listed. There are eTower models, eMonster models and T models. You will find the model number on the front of your computer. If you cannot see it or find it, then you should also be able to find it in the User’s Guide. Or if you still have the receipt, you should be able to find that number there too.
A lot of people want to know what they are going to get before they fill out the form. In this case you will get a replacement computer. You can also opt for a cash payment. So I would say that this is not too bad. If I had a defective computer, I would be very happy to get replacement. However, if you feel that you would rather get the cash and buy your own computer, then that is not too bad of an idea. You will then be able to get whatever computer you wanted. So if you provide a valid proof of purchase and send it in with your claim form, you will get a redemption certificate for $365. You can use this to by an Acer, Gateway or eMachines computer. In order to find out which computer you can get, you can go to the www.secondipity.com site. If you just want cash, you can redeem the redemption certificate for $62.50 in cash.
You also do not have to worry about sending your computer back to the company. That would deter anyone from submitting their claim form. So not having to do this makes it much easier to submit the claim form. I would not fancy having to not only ship the computer but imagine trying to get your personal data off of the computer. What a mess that would be. No matter what software I buy, I am always not sure if someone with the right know how could still get data off of the machine. If I were to ever get rid of a computer, I would like to see it completely smashed. I would actually like to see it in very small bits and pieces. Only that would give me peace of mind. Nothing else would.
If you do not want to take part, then you must submit a letter that says so. In this letter you must mention the lawsuit. The lawsuit is actually called Stroud v. eMachines, Inc. The case number is CH-2003-968-L. In addition you must include your personal information such as your name, your address and your telephone number. And you must also provide the date that you bought your computer. The one that has the issues that is. You must also remember to sign your letter which has to be postmarked by March 8, 2013.
